Challenge

Digital transformation promises transparency and elimination of corruption. Digitization projects create vast opportunities to share data and innovate, rethink and streamline the functions of organisations and save costs. But most importantly, digital transformation is considered to be the direct way to poverty elimination.

Therefore, central governments around the globe are rapidly digitizing their operations and going online. However, inherently, systems that collect personally identifiable, sensible information and transactional data from multiple sources in one place become targets for cyber-attacks.

Despite of that, more often than not, functionality is considered as the primary objective of any modernisation project; security comes with no priority attached to it. If cybersecurity is considered at all, it is thought of as very technical, something that is put on IT systems as an afterthought, preferably in the shape of another box.

Sometimes processes are deployed and even ITIL or ISO certifications are acquired, with processes described over hundreds of pages, but with no real impact on the organizational culture. At the same time, little time is allocated for capacity building programmes. Two weeks of training may provide a knowledge boost, but it does not produce new habits. So, new knowledge gives way to old habits.

In case of a cyber incident, the reputation of the organization is hurt, and trust in the newly developed system is lost.

Our approach

At NRD Cyber Security, we believe that institutions are defined by how they use information technology and how they ensure the security of their operations. Cyber security is not a technical issue - top management of any organisations holds full responsibility of ensuring the security of its operations.
