WHAT CYBER FOR GOOD IS
Cyber for Good is an ITU project that aims to bridge the cybersecurity capacity gap in the Least Developed Countries (LDCs) through facilitated support and access to ITU Members’ experience, expertise, services, tools, and products.
CYBERSECURITY CAPACITY GAP
Least Developed Countries (LDCs)
have the least capacity in terms of resources, skills, and tools to proactively manage cybersecurity risks. Global cybersecurity trends show that this gap has been increasing over time.
Cybersecurity monitoring data shows that while the average developed country's national cybersecurity performance has steadily improved since 2017, the average LDC cybersecurity performance has declined.
According to the ITU Global Cybersecurity Index
, the improvement rate is significantly slower in Least Developed Countries, leaving them with an outpaced national cybersecurity posture.
If you would like to support the Cyber for Good project to reduce the cybersecurity capacity gap for LDCs through providing tools, training, or other services at no cost. You can reach us at email@example.com.
The ITU Cyber for Good project supports pillar 3 (Cybersecurity) of Focus Area 1 (Access: Connecting people everywhere) of the P2C action framework. Through the Partner2Connect Digital Coalition, Cyber for Good will enable LDCs to benefit from ITU Members’ expertise, services, and tools.

The Cyber for Good project was made possible through collaboration and financial contribution by the Ministry of Science and ICT (MSIT
) of the Republic of Korea and the ITU.
