Cybercrime policies/strategies

Republic of Sudan doesn’t have a publicly published strategy on cybercrime or cybersecurity.

The Sudan Computer Emergency Response Team (Sudan CERT) acts as first responder to information security incidents. It is also responsible with raising security awareness for companies, institutions and all national facilities and to protect them against cyberattacks. Also, it acts as an advisory body to citizens and companies in information security before and after cyber-attacks, as well as traces the criminals of cyberattacks and hand them over for trial under existing laws.

One year after having put in place a cybercrime legislation (through Computer Crime Act of 2007), Sudan established its first Attorney General for Cyber Crimes (2008).
