The volatile and dynamic nature of cyberspace has raised concerns over security and organisations are trying to make policies to protect their digital assets. However, policymaking in this field is still using traditional methods, which are slow and incompatible with the pace of change in the environment. Thus, it is vital to increase the speed of policy development in an agile and flexible manner. The question is, what does agility mean here and why is it important for organisations? To answer these questions, this study uses a systematic literature review approach and investigates 42 selected papers. By analysing the selected papers, a definition of cybersecurity policymaking agility is provided, and its importance in combating new cyberthreats is discussed. Building on and extending the organisational agility, policymaking and cybersecurity management research streams, the findings of this study propose new research opportunities for future studies.
