In a context where cybersecurity is becoming a major concern of so many of the worlds countries, some in Central Africa seem not to be concerned. In the meantime, due to the strength of a growing economy, there is a growing penetration of information technologies in this region. Governments are striving to catch up to this reality. The Central African militaries, which are supposed to be the first line of defense for their governments' institutions, are dramatically behind the times. To address this situation, the governments of Central Africa need to adopt a collaborative cyber strategy based on common investment in secure cyber infrastructures. Such cooperation will help to create a strong cyber environment conducive of the confidence and trust necessary for the emergence of a cyber community of Central African States (C3AS). For Central African militaries, massive training and recruiting will be the first move to begin the process of catching up.
