In the reality of an increasingly connected world – in which the internet, digitally enabled services, devices and emerging tech are becoming an integral part of economies worldwide – effective cybersecurity plays an absolutely critical role. With growing use and dependency on ICTs, so grow the risks. This means responding to constantly evolving challenges and cyber threats – which require that all stakeholders be aware of risk factors, have the necessary capabilities and take appropriate action to prevent or address them. To ensure a safe, resilient and secure digital realm – from which all citizens can benefit – countries have to navigate the complex, cross-cutting field of cybersecurity – which involves strategy, technical, legal, policy, and security matters, as well as multisector and international collaboration.

The cybersecurity programme offers valuable tools, critical insights, assessment and technical assistance to support ITU membership – particularly developing countries – in increasing their cybersecurity capabilities, and building trust and confidence in the use of ICTs.
