Humanitarian non-governmental organizations (NGOs) protect and assist vulnerable populations but often fail to protect themselves from cyberattacks. The CyberPeace Builders help NGOs with their cybersecurity whether they work locally or globally, and are supporting NGOs in crisis affected areas across the globe including Ukraine, Kenya and Afghanistan.
WE ASSIST Humanitarian NGOs through the provision of free cybersecurity support including threat analysis, cyber hygiene, vulnerability scanning, cybersecurity training, post-incident support, as well as data protection, legal and communication support.
WE INVESTIGATE cyberattacks to help prevent future attacks affecting the humanitarian and other critical sectors by identifying the vulnerabilities that attackers exploited. We alert NGOs to risks and vulnerabilities.
WE ADVOCATE for respect of laws and norms to protect NGOs from cyberattacks.
