How does capacity-building make cyberspace better?

— Short animation outlining the importance of cyber capacity-building in maintaining international peace and stability in cyberspace.

Cyber capacity-building can strengthen a country’s legal, technical, and policy capability, and protect against malicious cyber activity.

Countries have endorsed a set of Capacity-Building Principles at the United Nations. Focusing on process, partnerships, and people, the principles recognize the need for increased cooperation.

Building national cyber capacity enhances a country’s ability to detect, investigate, and respond to threats. Therefore, supporting cyber capacity-building is essential to creating a cyberspace that works for all.

This project aims to create an inclusive approach to cyber governance through a series of activities, including regional conferences, multimedia outputs and a special issue of the Journal of Cyber Policy.
