The cybersecurity capacity gap and how to reduce it

Cybercrime is on the rise. But the supply of cybersecurity skills and solutions is failing to match growing demand. Capacity building can solve this problem, paving the way for a cybersecure future and laying the foundations to match short-, medium-, and long-term needs.

This paper looks at how it can be done and why a tailored capacity-building strategy is crucial, exploring:

  • Capacity building in context.
  • Capacity-building initiatives:
    • People and skills.
    • Technology, infrastructure and R&D.
    • Knowledge-sharing and awareness.
  • Considerations for initiative implementation.
