Albania, a reliable member of NATO for stability and security

In the meeting with the delegation of the Commission for Democracy and Security of the NATO Parliamentary Assembly, near the Presidency of the Albanian Assembly, Mr. Igli Tafa, General Director of the National Authority for Electronic Certification and Cyber Security (AKCESK), in his speech shared Albania’s achievements in improving cyber space. In this meeting, the lack of cyber security experts and the role of the Authority in reducing this gap through a clear training plan were highlighted.


Technological needs and a series of efforts to raise standards in Albania’s cyber ecosystem were also presented. A special place in this discussion was taken by cyber attacks towards our country as well as taking the necessary measures to increase cyber resistance.


Mr. Franc Zylyftari, Head of the Cyber Security Department at the National Agency of Information Society, brought to attention the ‘Zero Trust’ principle used by ANA to protect the Albanian governmental cyber space against foreign cyber threats. This security model focuses on protecting Albanian cyberspace from transnational threats and foreign interference.
