Get Safe Online is one of many partners and ‘implementors’ that has delivered (and continues to deliver) cyber security capacity building initiatives funded by the UK Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office.

At CHOGM 2018, Government leaders signed The Commonwealth Cyber Declaration to support a cyberspace that promotes economic and social development, and rights online as well as building incident response capacity and promoting international stability through co-operation. Through its Commonwealth cyber capacity building projects, the UK has supported the Declaration, by investing over £15 million to make the internet safer across the Commonwealth to help maintain a cyberspace that is free, open, peaceful and secure.

The UK’s Prime Minister Boris Johnson is the current Commonwealth Chair-in-Office but formally hands over this role to the Rwandan President Paul Kagame at The Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in June 2022.  To coincide with this meeting, Get Safe Online and other partners have developed a series of resources that demonstrate the projects and benefits that have been delivered by the UK over the last four years in partnership with many Commonwealth countries.
