It also examines the availability and quality of communication networks and services in Latvia as well as related policies and regulations. Further, it reviews trends in digital technology usage among individuals, businesses and the government, and examines policies to foster diffusion.

The first Cyber Security Strategy of Latvia, covering the period 2014-18, took stock of the digital transformation, and marked a shift towards a more strategic and whole-of-government approach to digital security. The second Cyber Security Strategy of Latvia, covering 2019-22, continues this trajectory, with a greater emphasis on risk management, resilience, public awareness, and the need to balance digital security with openness, prosperity and human rights.
