CyberPeace Café

Welcome to the CyberPeace Cafe!  Join our community.  

Are you aware of your organization’s cybersecurity needs?  Here you will find information, tips and inspiration on cybersecurity for NGOs. 

We aim to provide materials that show how to improve cybersecurity.  

We are here to help.  You can contribute and engage.  You can make a difference.

Collaboration for Cyber Awareness

To help NGOs around the world improve their cybersecurity: 

  • We collaborate and work as a community to identify and share free materials that contribute to awareness of good practices in cybersecurity;
  • We offer support and help to answer concerns and questions on cybersecurity needs for NGOs;
  • We signpost to other organizations, if we cannot help.

Our posters address the cybersecurity needs of the NGOs working in the field of healthcare and water facilities, in order to increase cyber awareness of their staff, and in doing so helping to better protect the vulnerable populations they serve.

The posters cover five topics that represent the most common cyber threats and attack vectors: poor passwords, phishing emails, unsecure websites, social media and disinformation. Posters are available in English, French and Swahili. Go ahead, download the posters, print them, stick them on the wall, share them with your colleagues and friends. And if you’d like to reuse them for your organization or even modify them, we’d love to help you do that, just get in touch with us.

If you are an NGO in need of cybersecurity support

We are here to support you.  This is a free service.  Reach out to us.  We treat this confidentially.

Don’t miss the opportunity to train your staff on cyber hygiene! 

“The internet has a mind of its own. Closing the webpages or logging out of your social media accounts won’t make it forget about your online activities. The best way to stay safe is to surf safely, so learn to stop, verify then surf. Internet safety begins with you.”

Frequently Asked Questions

The CyberPeace Café is a community meeting place of NGOs and CyberPeace Builders where you and your organization can engage and seek help on cybersecurity matters.

If your organization has produced cybersecurity awareness materials that you believe can benefit the community, then please share them with us at [email protected].  We are seeking materials that provide clear and simple messages, are inclusive and appealing to NGOs,, are contextually relevant to different environments and address cybersecurity awareness for a non-specialist audience. Materials can be posters, video clips, cartoons, etc. The target audience is NGOs working in critical sectors.

All the materials on the CyberPeace Café are free and accessible for anyone. You can share them with other organizations, you can download them and spread awareness on social media channels.

Our focus is NGOs but most of what is recommended in the awareness materials we share does apply to other organizations. We welcome any feedback to strengthen materials we provide.  Please contact us at [email protected].  

We provide free assistance to NGOs to help them prepare for and recover from cyberattacks. Our CyberPeace Builders programme brings cybersecurity experts directly to humanitarian NGOs.   If you are working with an NGO that could benefit from this support, feel free to reach out to us at [email protected].

Both the CyberPeace Builders and the CyberPeace Café aim to support NGOs. The Café is a place where you can find resources from around the world that can help NGOs with  cybersecurity awareness materials. The CyberPeace Builders is an active support programme for NGOs with more specific cybersecurity needs.  It is a service that provides volunteers to assist NGOs to prepare and recover from cyberattacks.  Both initiatives are managed by the same dedicated team at the CyberPeace Institute.

If you are interested in collaborating with us on projects like those featured here, please contact us at assistance@cyberpeaceinstitute.org

The CyberPeace Institute is an independent and neutral non governmental organization.  We assist vulnerable communities and non governmental organizations (NGOs) to prepare for and recover from cyberattacks.
