Bangladesh has a great ambition of becoming an upper middle-income country by its 50th birthday in 2021. To achieve this goal, bring efficiency to public sector and encourage economic development, Bangladesh has set itself on a digitalization journey. However, with the benefits brought by technological advancement, come significant risks in cybersecurity area.

To address cyber threats, Bangladesh has been putting a lot of effort to enhance cyber resilience at national level. The state has not only committed to establish security measures, such as Bangladesh e-Government Computer Incident Response Team (BGD e-Gov CIRT), but also to encourage local organizations to build their own cybersecurity capacity.  Therefore, on 2nd of May 2019, NRD Cyber Security and BGD e-GOV CIRT, which is located in Bangladesh Computer Council (BCC) premises, organized a joint event which aimed to inspire newly created CIRTs in Bangladesh to build own teams and grow professionally.

The 3-hour workshop 3 consisted of BGD e-GOV CIRT and NRD Cyber Security presentations on CSIRTs and was followed by a discussion and visit to BGD e-GOV CIRT operations.

Participants from 9 organizations, which recently announced about the set-up of CIRTs, were invited:

  1. Ansar-VDP Unnayan Bank;
  2. Bangladesh Bank;
  3. Bangladesh NGO Foundation;
  4. Finance Ministry;
  5. Grameen Bank;
  6. Janata Bank;
  7. Pallisanchai Bank;
  8. PKSF;
  9. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
