This APCICT knowledge resource on Cybersecurity is the second issue in the APCICT Knowledge Sharing Series (KSS). This issue explores the steps needed to develop cybersecurity policies and strategies, and in setting up and enforcing effective national cybersecurity initiatives to detect, prevent and mitigate cyberthreats.

The KSS is intended to complement APCICT's Academy of ICT Essentials for Government Leaders (Academy), a comprehensive ICT for development (ICTD) capacity development programme. The KSS was developed as a result of a strong demand by APCICT partners for thematic learning materials that can offer a practical, action-oriented insight into the broad ICTD-policy framework provided by the Academy modules. The specific contents covered in the KSS include step-by-step guidelines, concrete strategies, best practices, and case studies.

Prepared with the support of the Ministry of Strategy and Finance of the Republic of Korea, each issue in the Series focuses on a specific ICT for Development (ICTD) theme, programme or project, and offers an end-to-end road map that can help policymakers in their planning, implementation, monitoring and evaluation processes.
