Portal signals first global online cybersecurity resource

Cybersecurity Capacity Portal to help coordinate international efforts in cybersecurity through sharing of information and best practice.

By Ellie Burns

Launched today, the Cybersecurity Capacity Portal is the first global online resource for building cybersecurity capacity.

The portal will help coordinate international efforts in cybersecurity through sharing of information and best practice, to support decisions and investments that can significantly enhance safety and security in cyberspace.

Collated by a team of researchers at the Global Cyber Security Capacity Centre, information will be easily shared between governments, agencies, international and regional organisations, industry groups, academics, NGOs and others with a role in cybersecurity capacity building.

Material including government directives, case studies, articles, videos and industry insights will be made publically available, with users also able to join discussion groups or suggest new content to ensure that the portal contains the latest thinking on threat-related issues.

The portal was created by the Global Cyber Security Capacity Centre, based at the Oxford Martin School, in partnership with Saïd Business School – both at the University of Oxford.

The portal also contains information on the work of the Centre, which works to understand how to deliver effective cybersecurity both within the UK and internationally. Organisations collaborating with the Centre in this work include the Organization of American States and the World Bank.

Centre Director, Professor Sadie Creese, comments: "Building capacity in cybersecurity is essential to keeping our online environments, societies and economies safe and prosperous."

"This new portal will be a one-stop shop for essential information on what is already being done around the world and what we can learn from those experiences to enable us to better increase the scale, pace and quality of cybersecurity."

David Upton, Professor of Operations Management at Saïd Business School, co-chairs research into internal cyber attacks: "Cybersecurity needs a multi-pronged approach, and here at the Business School we’ve been focusing on education, leadership and skills," he said "It’s increasingly clear that these risks need to be addressed at executive level, not just by the IT Department, and this portal will be a key source of information to help with this."
