Digital Development (DD) Global Practice of the World Bank (WB) seeks a consulting firm to support its work to enhance cybersecurity resilience in the Central African Republic. Hence, this Activity shall help build a valuable knowledge base among key policymakers and cybersecurity practitioners to ensure that the Government of CAR (GoCAR) can enhance its capacity to protect critical infrastructures and essential public services from cyber risks that come with the fast development of new, sophisticated, and far-reaching digital technologies, while at the same time fostering innovation and adoption of these technologies. This Activity shall generate a series of complementary outputs in the form of tools, knowledge, policy advice, and practical guidance to enable key stakeholders in CAR to better manage cybersecurity risks. This Activity will directly contribute to the implementation of the World Bank-financed “CAR Public Sector Digital Governance – PGNSP” Investment Project Financing (IPF) that aim to tackle foundational issues related to digital transformation in the country. While the PGNSP will draft the laws and regulations underpinning cybersecurity and cybercrime and implement cybersecurity measures (roadmap for CAR’s cybersecurity preparedness, cybersecurity operational architecture) that protect the investments in the e-government initiatives funded by the project as well as future initiatives to digitalize public administration, this technical assistance funded from a Bank-executed Trust Fund (https://www.digitaldevelopmentpartnership.org/) will prepare these activities through a cybersecurity risk management assessment.
