NATO CCDCOE – National Cyber Security Framework Manual
NATO Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence has published the “National Cyber Security Framework Manual” which aims to support NATO Member States and Partner Nations as a guide on how to develop or improve their national policies and laws of national cyber security.
The Manual is not attempting to provide a single universally applicable check-list of aspects to consider when drafting a national cyber security strategy. Rather, it provides detailed background information and in-depth theoretical frameworks to help the reader understand the different facets of national cyber security, according to different levels of public policy formulation. The four levels of government – political, strategic, operational and tactical/technical – each have their own perspectives on national cyber security, and each is addressed in individual sections within the Manual. Additionally, the Manual gives examples of relevant institutions in national cyber security, from top-level policy coordination bodies down to cyber crisis management structures and similar institutions.
