Although a huge number of problems have not been exactly solved yet, technical and organizational aspects of cyber security have been widely addressed by the security community. A new era that covers the national aspect of the problem domain has started with the publishing of national cyber security strategies. Capabilities of national CERTs have been strengthened and their responsibilities have been extended beyond the basic incident coordination activities. Obtaining the national level cyber situational awareness is among the foremost responsibilities of authorities and operational bodies. Therefore, this new era requires situational awareness systems that perform security monitoring and information sharing functions for the determination of the nation-wide security status. In this study, the national cyber security strategies and the responsibilities of relevant agencies are analyzed from the situational awareness perspective. An analysis of the systems that help to understand national situational picture is also given within the study.
