What are the maturity levels of NCAF?

The National Cybersecurity Capacity-Building Framework (NCAF) is a set of five maturity levels that define the stages Member States go through when building cybersecurity capabilities. The five levels are designed to represent increasing levels of maturity, from Level 1, where Member States do not have a clearly defined approach for cybersecurity capacity-building, to Level 5, where the cybersecurity capacity-building strategy is dynamic and adaptive to environmental developments. Level 1 is the initial stage of the NCAF and is characterized by a lack of awareness of cybersecurity issues and a lack of knowledge and understanding of the need for cybersecurity capacity-building. At this level, Member States may not have a clearly defined approach for cybersecurity capacity-building and may lack the necessary resources and expertise to develop and implement a comprehensive strategy. Level 2 is focused on establishing a baseline of knowledge and understanding of cybersecurity issues and developing a plan for capacity-building. At this level, Member States have begun to identify the key areas of cybersecurity capacity-building and have established a plan to address them. Level 3 is focused on implementing the plan from Level 2 and developing a comprehensive cybersecurity capacity-building strategy. At this level, Member States have developed a comprehensive cybersecurity capacity-building strategy and are beginning to implement it. Level 4 is focused on refining and improving the strategy from Level 3 and ensuring that it is up-to-date and comprehensive. At this level, Member States have begun to review their strategy to ensure that it is comprehensive and up-to-date, and have begun to develop measures to ensure that their strategy remains effective in the face of changing threats. Level 5 is focused on ensuring that the strategy from Level 4 is dynamic and adaptive to environmental developments. At this level, Member States have developed an ongoing process for monitoring and assessing their strategy to ensure that it is effective and up-to-date. They have also developed measures to ensure that their strategy is dynamic and adaptive to changing threats. The NCAF maturity levels provide Member States with a framework for developing and implementing a comprehensive cybersecurity capacity-building strategy. By progressing through the five levels, Member States can ensure that their strategy is comprehensive, up-to-date, and adaptive to changing threats. .
