Cybercrime policies/strategies

In August 2019 the Ministry of Posts, Telecommunications and Digital Economy of the Republic of Congo has officially presented the National Digital Strategy 2025. The document has as purpose to define and guide the transition of Congo towards a digital economy.

The National Digital Strategy 2025 has three pillars: e-citizen, e-government and e-business, each of it with different strategic axis. Cybercrime (with its international cooperation component), cybersecurity and data protection are defined under the Judicial and Institutional Framework strategic axis of the first pillar, while the creation of the national agency for computer systems is foreseen under the same strategic axis of the second pillar. A CERT is foreseen to be created under the Digital Trust strategic axis of the third pillar.

Under the same Ministry, work has been undertaken to draft a National Cyber Security Strategy, which is expected to be completed in 2020.
