Cyber Security Capacity Portal launches


The Global Cyber Security Capacity Centre has developed a new online portal, designed to be a central point of resource about cybersecurity capacity building and how best to achieve it. It was officially launched this week and is available to all for free from our website or at:

The Cybersecurity Capacity Portal has been created by the Centre, based at the Oxford Martin School, University of Oxford, in partnership with Oxford’s Saïd Business School, and with the assistance of the Centre’s international Working Groups.

It gives both policy-makers and those helping to deliver capacity building within the cyber security professional community information on a wide range of essential elements of cybersecurity – from national policies, regulation and protecting against cybercrime, to encouraging responsible cyber culture and building skills in the workforce and leadership – as well as technological developments to enable better cybersecurity.

Information on the new portal is organised around the structure of a new Cybersecurity Capacity Capability Maturity Model (CMM) being developed by the Centre – this will enable policy-makers to understand what good cybersecurity looks like across various key aspects (or ‘dimensions’) and also to benchmark and measure their capacity over time.

The portal is a constantly developing resource, and more content will be added to make this a comprehensive repository of capacity building information, best practice and expert comment. The Centre welcomes and encourages feedback, suggestions for new content and experiences from users and stakeholders from around the world.

The Global Cyber Security Capacity Building Centre aims to understand how to deliver increases in cyber security capacity in its widest sense, in order to develop a framework to underpin policy-making in the UK and internationally. You can find out more details on the Centre from our website:
