Turkey reveals its three-year cybersecurity plan


The country hopes to defend its citizens from cyberattacks through a set of new measures.

As Turkey has faced 325,000 cyberattacks in the last three years, Ankara rolled out a new national cybersecurity plan on Tuesday.


Signed by Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the plan underlined the role of information technology in sustainable development and also raised a caution about the risks that come with it.


The action plan stated that cyber threats may negatively affect all sectors including communications, transport, energy, banking, finance and health. Therefore, it added, measures were accelerated to tackle the increasing threats in cyberspace.

Turkey’s Transport and Infrastructure Ministry has prepared an action plan for the 2020-2023 period in coordination with the NGOs, universities, public and private sectors.

Turkey's National Cyber Security Strategy and Action Plan include 40 actions and 75 implementation steps in relation to strategic objectives.
