Global Cybersecurity Index (GCI) 2015/16 Questionnaire Guide

This document is for information only. The GCI measures the commitment of countries to cybersecurity in the five pillars of the Global Cybersecurity Agenda: Legal Measures, Technical Measures, Organizational Measures, Capacity Building, and Cooperation.

This questionnaire has merged questions elaborated for establishing the GCI 2015/16 Score together with those required by ITU-D Study Group 2 Question 3. The questionnaire is composed of three separate sections, where questions in the first two sections have yes/no responses whilst the questions in the last section are open ended. The questionnaire should be completed online. Each respondent will be provided (via an official email from ITU) a unique url for his/her safekeeping. The online questionnaire enables the respondents to upload relevant documents (and urls) for each question as supporting information.

Information being provided by respondents to this questionnaire is not expected to be of confidential nature.
