According to him, two new modules were introduced in the new system, with the help of which it will be possible to see how effective the level of cybersecurity of institutions is and where they are placed.
“In the upcoming future, cybersecurity rating for government organizations to be published following security audits held in agencies through the new electronic survey system. One of the innovations in the survey system is the cybersecurity index of government agencies that each state agency will be able to see its information security or cybersecurity index here. At the same time, it will receive the information on its ranking on the rating. Another index is the “vigilance” index that here we will check the response times of state organizations to our request. In other words, we will demonstrate there which state organization is watchful and how fast they respond to our request system,” T. Mammadov stated.
