International cyber capacity building: global trends and scenarios

International cyber capacity building projects involve countries, companies and organisations helping each other across borders to develop functioning and accountable institutions that respond effectively to cybercrime and to strengthen a country's cyber resilience.

These projects take many forms, such as advising government teams that respond to national cybersecurity incidents, helping countries design and run public awareness campaigns about staying safe online and training police to investigate cybercrime.

Commissioned by the Service for Foreign Policy Instruments of the European Commission, this report identifies four trends in cyber capacity building and extrapolates their development to explore four potential scenarios that can inform capacity builders' strategic decision making.
