Cyber capacity building (CCB) is increasingly important to share knowledge and build expertise in cyber: countries with advanced cyber capabilities are taking a global approach to cyber resilience, appreciating that greater international cyber security is widely beneficial. Multilateral organisations have similarly engaged with CCB, with the Global Forum for Cyber Expertise acting as a coordinating body.
RUSI’s research on CCB has examined programme design, including through scoping and devising projects; evaluation of ongoing international activities; proposals to improve coordination; particular national contexts including Indonesia, Kenya and India; and various themes across law enforcement capabilities, cyber awareness, critical national infrastructure, cyber diplomacy and training.
We are currently exploring further CCB-related research projects and plan to increase our engagement on initiatives across Africa and the Indo-Pacific.
