Hi all,

I am writing to share with you this opportunity just launched by the GCSCC
of the University of Oxford in case of interest. Please see the relevant
information, including contact details, below.


The Global Cybersecurity Capacity Centre (GCSCC), University of Oxford,
invites interested individuals with expertise in cybersecurity capacity
building to become a correspondent for the Cybersecurity Capacity Portal:


This publically-accessible online platform is a key output of the GCSCC,
<http://www.oxfordmartin.ox.ac.uk/cybersecurity/> Oxford Martin School,
University of Oxford, and is created in partnership with Saïd Business

The need for this *central source* of information for effective
cybersecurity capacity building was the result of consultation with a broad
range of stakeholders across the world. Since 2014 the Cybersecurity
Capacity Portal has been an online space for sharing experiences, best
practices, and new developments; and contains publically available
information and comment in a single place. It has become a one-stop-shop *for
expertise and knowledge on how, when and why to develop cybersecurity
capacity**. *It has been designed primarily to be of use for governments,
agencies, international and regional organisations, industry groups,
academics, NGOs and others with a role in cyber security capacity building.

As the first implementation phase has ended and our work has been well
received internationally, the GCSCC is now proceeding to the next stage of
development. They are therefore inviting a new network of correspondents
from various disciplines and regions to regularly contribute content which
relates to cybersecurity capacity building.  This will enhance the regional
representation, allow the presentation of new developments and trends more
rapidly, and ensure the portal stays a central point of reference for all
stakeholders *around the world.*

Correspondents are acknowledged as such on the portal and will be invited
to take part in the events and activities of the Centre. For more details,
please see below the Terms of Reference.

Please sent your profile and writing examples to *the Portal Manager,
Carolin Weisser, carolin.weisser at oxfordmartin.ox.ac.uk
<carolin.weisser at oxfordmartin.ox.ac.uk>, p*hone: +44(0)1865 287903

*For more information or questions, please don’t hesitate to get in
contact. *

*Cybersecurity Capacity Portal*

*Correspondents – Terms of Reference*


*The purpose of a correspondent is to provide content to the *Cybersecurity
Capacity Portal
<https://www.sbs.ox.ac.uk/cybersecurity-capacity/explore/home>* and to
support its goal to be a central source for organisations and stakeholders
around the world to access expertise and knowledge on how, when and why to
develop capacity in cybersecurity, as well as current views on the nature
of the threats we face. *

*The role of a correspondent is to provide content to the portal on a
regular basis, to advise on the relevance and diversity of content, to help
ensure content is up-to-date, and to ensure that the full spectrum of cyber
capacity building (CCB) is represented. The input is based on their
individual expertise and may represent one or more dimension of cyber
capacity building, and/or may have a regional focus. *

*It is anticipated that these inputs will take a variety of forms,

*·      **identifying suitable content pieces for the portal from the field
of CCB (with a thematic and/or a regional focus) according to the portal’s
content policy;*

*·      **providing content in electronic form to the portal manager (link
or document), e.g. reports, studies, papers, articles or any other kind of
publication by third parties; or contributing papers, articles, blog posts,
comments or reports written by themselves or their organisation;*

*·      **promoting the portal during events, in their networks and via
their respective communication channels;*

*·      **providing information for the **GFCE inventory*
<http://www.sbs.ox.ac.uk/cybersecurity-capacity/explore/gfce>* which is a
mapping exercise of national, regional and global CCB activities in
partnership with the Global Forum on Cyber Expertise. Correspondents should
help to identify initiatives and encourage submissions to the inventory;*

*·      **supporting the portal manager in establishing the global network
of contributors by attracting bodies/individuals as “correspondents” for
the portal;*

*·      **putting about 2 hrs per week into the development of content.*


*Correspondents will be able to actively shape the character of the portal
and their involvement will be acknowledged on the portal with their name,
title, and organisational affiliation. They have also the opportunity to
promote their own material and reach a broader audience through the global
CCB community. They will also be invited to events of the Centre and will
have access to its network of global experts in CCB.*

*Time Commitment*

*Correspondents will be expected to contribute regularly to the portal. As
it is fully understood that this is a voluntary contribution of time, we
will do our best to make requests convenient to correspondents as far as is
reasonably possible. Regular contributions are important to the success of
the Portal and the amount of contributions will be reviewed on an annual
basis in order to maintain the required energy for the Portal’s success. *
