The programme aims to strengthen the resilience of the Georgian cyber ecosystem, to develop cybersecurity capability and capacity, and to protect Georgian sovereignty in cyberspace. It also intends to improve coherence within Georgia’s cyber ecosystem by enabling effective responses to threats, developing greater collaboration with internal and external stakeholders, increasing Georgian people’s awareness of malicious actors, and encouraging cyber hygiene practices.
The main objectives of the programme are to:
- Continue the UK’s ongoing support to the The National Security Council’s (NSC) Office of Georgia to implement and deliver its cybersecurity strategy;
- Build cybersecurity capabilities and capacity to support the Georgian government in developing and delivering an incident management framework, including x-governmental policy for incident classification and information-sharing; and
- Deliver a gender- and conflict-sensitive campaign to increase cyber awareness, cyber hygiene, and skills in the Georgian population, targeting non-major cities and coordinating with international partners.
In the course of the project, PMCG will provide the following services:
- Identifying, analyzing, and engaging project stakeholders;
- Identifying existing cyber legislation, policy, and capability;
- Supporting the development of project plans in order to achieve outcomes;
- Developing analysis and activity reports;
