CyberPeace Builders: assist non-governmental organizations (NGOs) strengthen their cybersecurity
In the last 3 years, over 200 cyberattacks have been reported on non-governmental organizations (NGOs). The majority do not disclose the incidents they experience. Over 1 billion people worldwide are dependent on NGOs, but there are limited resources to protect these essential services.
CyberPeace Builders are trusted corporate volunteers who provide cybersecurity assistance to NGOs that protect vulnerable populations. The goal of the CyberPeace Builders’ program is to support and advise NGOs working in critical sectors such as health, water and sanitation, food and agriculture and many more.
Help them provide assistance to victims of cyberattacks in the humanitarian sector. Individual lives can be changed forever by the acts of cyber criminals.
The CyberPeace Builders’ program has assisted over 80 NGOs, who collectively provide aid to 350 million people across 120 countries. The CyberPeace Builders aim to assist at least 300 NGOs by the end of 2023, raising this goal to a total of 1000 by 2025. The focus is now on recruiting more volunteers, aiming to bring on board a total of 300 volunteers by the end of 2023, and 3,000 volunteers by the end of 2025.
About Cyber Peace Institute
The CyberPeace Institute is an independent and neutral non-governmental organization, headquartered in Switzerland, which strives to reduce the frequency, impact and scale of cyberattacks, to hold actors accountable for the harm they cause, and to assist vulnerable communities.
