In the modern era cyber security becomes the national strategic issue that affects all levels of society. A flexible, operative and effective struggle against cyber threats requires the national targets and priorities to be achieved within a certain timeline, and the roles and responsibilities of stakeholders to be correctly identified. A national cyber security strategy is the first step on this direction. In this paper, existing national cyber security strategies are analyzed with the aim of identifying the best practices in the development of national cyber security strategies. (pp. 42-51)
