Sunday, November 23, 2014

This document outlines the National Cyber Security Strategy of the State of Qatar. As envisioned in the Qatar National Vision 2030, the NCCS represents a roadmap towards enhancing cyber security in Qatar by establishing and maintaining a secure cyberspace to safeguard national interests and preserve the fundamental rights and values of Qatar’s society.

In support of Qatar’s efforts to keep our networks and our people safe and to address current and emerging cyberspace threats and risks, the Qatar National Cyber Security Strategy (NCSS) was developed by the National Cyber Security Committee, presided by the Ministry of Information and Communications Technology, in light of the strategic thrusts of Qatar’s National ICT Plan 2015 to protect the national critical information infrastructure and to provide a safe and secure online environment for the different sectors

The strategic initiatives, outlined in the NCCS, describe how Qatar will make progress against the cyber security objectives. Moreover, the NCSS provides an action plan with more details on the Qatari government’s plan to achieve Qatar’s cyber security vision over the period of 2014-2018. The plan is organized by objective and requires various stakeholders from government entities and institutions to work collaboratively with many others to implement these objectives and relevant actions for the benefit of Qatar.
