Cybersecurity is a complex challenge that encompasses multiple different governances, policy, operational, technical, and legal aspects. This training provides general knowledge to address, organize and prioritize many of these areas based on existing and well-recognized models, frameworks, and other references. The training focuses on elements for protecting civilian aspects of cyberspace and as such, it covers the overarching principles and good practices that need to be considered in the process of drafting, developing, and managing a National Cybersecurity Strategy. To this end, the training makes a clear distinction between the process that will be adopted by countries during the lifecycle of a National Cybersecurity Strategy (initiation, stocktaking, analysis, production, implementation, reviews) and the content, the actual text that would appear in a National Cybersecurity Strategy document. This training does not cover aspects such as the development of defensive or offensive cyber capabilities by a country's military, defense forces, or intelligence agencies. The training also provides an overview of the core components of what it takes for a country to become cyber-prepared, highlighting the critical aspects that governments should consider when developing their national strategies and implementation plans. Finally, this training provides policymakers a holistic, high-level overview of existing approaches and applications, and a reference to additional and complementary resources that can inform specific national cybersecurity efforts.
