Introduction


The Government of Rwanda (GoR) has invested significantly in Information and Communications Technology (ICT) infrastructure and applications, as a cornerstone for National economic growth. ICT is recognized as a key enabler for economic growth and social mobility and is expected to improve Rwandans’ standard of living as part of the Integrated ICT-led Socio-Economic Development Policy and Plan.

Even though the rapid development of ICT in Rwanda promises a positive impact on the nation’s economic growth, these technologies have introduced new types of threats such as cyber-crime, cyber espionage, hacktivist, cyber terrorism, cyber warfare, to mention a few. In order to minimize and mitigate the risk from cyber security threats, the Government of Rwanda established a Rwanda National Computer Security and Incident Response Team (Rw-CSIRT), mandated with preventing and responding to cyber security incidents in public and private cyberspace and raise awareness for the general public.
