Advancing 
Afghanistan's
 Cybersecurity

An instructor from Georgia teaches a class to a group of Afghan cyberprofessionals. The Afghans traveled to Turkey as part of a NATO program to improve cyberdefense in their home country.  

Sixteen Afghan cyberprofessionals set out along the fabled Silk Road earlier this year, but unlike those who traversed the routes during times past, they peddled no wares nor carried any desires to conquer. Rather, they journeyed to Turkey in search of skills that will help them turn a developing nation dealing with a vast array of cyberthreats into a place of stability with the technology capabilities necessary in the modern world.

NATO spearheaded this SILK-Afghanistan education effort that allowed Afghan representatives to attend a two-week course at Turkey’s Middle East Technical University (METU). That school was chosen both for its expertise and for the relative ease of logistics in hosting the event in Turkey. The Afghan students work in various institutions in their native nation, including universities in the city of Kabul and in other provinces, the country’s Ministry of Higher Education and the Afghan Telecommunications Regulatory Authority under the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology. Students also were chosen because of their roles in setting up the Afghan national database and because of a desire to enhance cooperation between two ministries in the government.
