Who We Are

The Global Cyber Security Capacity Centre (GCSCC) is a leading international centre for research on efficient and effective cybersecurity capacity-building, promoting an increase in the scale, pace, quality and impact of cybersecurity capacity-building initiatives across the world. It has created a first-of-its-kind model to review cybersecurity capacity maturity across five areas (or ‘Dimensions’), which aims to enable nations to self-assess, benchmark, better plan investments and national cybersecurity strategies, and set priorities for capacity development.

The Centre’s holistic approach to cybersecurity capacity assessment is driven by a diverse team of researchers and practitioners representing regions from all across the world and drawn from a diverse range of technical and policy backgrounds.

The technical direction for the GCSCC is set by its Technical Board, which comprises the Director, professors and senior thought-leaders who together cover the breadth of cybersecurity-related disciplines and practice.
