ITU published a guide to national cybersecurity

The International Telecommunications Union (ITU) has published the "National Cybersecurity Strategy Guide", designed to assist states in the creation and implementation of national cybersecurity strategies, including mechanisms for preparedness and countering cyberattacks.

With the help of the document, policymakers will be able to develop strategies that take into account the specific situation in the country, cultural and social values, and encourage the establishment of a secure, sustainable society with a developed ICT infrastructure, according to a press release from the ITU.

The guide was developed with the assistance of various governmental and international organizations, as well as representatives of the private sector, including the Commonwealth of Telecommunication Organizations, the Geneva Center for Security Policy, the University of Oxford, Microsoft, the Joint Center for Advanced Technologies of the NATO Cyber Defense,
