Project Summary Project title Development and Operation of a UN Cyber Resilience Learning Platform Project period From 01/01/2020 to 31/12/2022 (three years). Link with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development Living in an interconnected world renders us more fragile than we have ever been. Everything depends on energy, transportation, and communication. Cyberspace, as an embedded domain, plays a strong role in the development of any country. Emerging technologies, such as artificial intelligence (AI) and fifth generation cellular network technology (5G), continue to accelerate the rate of change that re-shapes our societies, businesses, and economies. In that light, securing cyberspace and finding adequate strategies in the face of constant change is a prerequisite for progress in economic, political and social spheres. Therefore, capacity in cybersecurity is critical for achieving the 2030 Agenda goals. Outcomes and outputs Outcome 1: Promote global information exchange and increase knowledge of local public-sector officials on current cybersecurity and emerging technologies subjects Output 1.1 Assessment of training needs of local government stakeholders regarding cybersecurity and emerging technologies Output 1.2 High-visibility global knowledge platform, including case-studies and training materials on cyber security and emerging technologies Output 1.3 Training toolbox on cyber security and emerging technologies issues in cities, including 4 new online courses and 4 new Training of Trainers (ToT) workshop Output 1.4 480 beneficiaries trained through 8 online courses (scholarships) Output 1.5 200 participants trained via 8 ToT workshops (scholarships) Outcome 2: Cybersecurity and emerging technologies learning institutionalized in partner cities Output 2.1 Global Forum on Cybersecurity, Emerging Technologies, and Cities gathering around 200 participants 4 Output 2.2 Three Centres of Excellence in Cybersecurity and Emerging Technologies established in three cities, reaching 600 beneficiaries Output 2.3 Methodology (Guidance Note) for the development of Cyber Resilience Learning Strategies Output 2.4 Cyber Resilience Learning Strategies implemented in 5 pilot partner city projects, reaching 1,250 beneficiaries Major activities UN Cyber:Learn will follow a two-fold approach aimed at (1) promoting knowledge exchange and strengthening individual capacities, and (2) strengthening institutional capacities.

Project timeframe 6 2. Rationale and Situation Analysis Cybersecurity as a development issue Living in an interconnected world renders us more fragile than we have ever been. Everything depends on energy, transportation, and communication. The challenges faced by nations, cities and communities are numerous as they are complex. More than that, these challenges interlink and form cascading effects that increasingly go beyond the capabilities of any single actor. As emerging technologies, such as AI and 5G, continue to rapidly impact our societies, businesses, and economies, this issue will become of more and more importance. 5G technology in particular promises to further connect us in ways we can only imagine. The opportunities presented by 5G and other emerging technologies are immense, yet with these developments come a whole new set of cyber threats, the implications of which very few fully understand. Without a response to cyber threats, advances in other domains, including those towards the Agenda 2030 goals, remain susceptible. Yet, at present, governments – especially those of developing countries – have shown a limited ability to deal with the cascading effects of the specific challenges in catastrophes and crises in which cyber space is deeply embedded1. While the United Nations does substantial work to strengthen cyber resilience, these efforts remain fragmented with no central place for coordination, access and knowledge exchange. Building a strategic response The International Telecommunication Union’s Cyber Security Index shows large deficits across many countries, predominately in the developing world, when it comes to preparing for cyber threats2. Similarly, efforts aimed at protecting cyberspace often do not transcend the ITdepartments and do not benefit from a strategic approach. A comprehensive learning strategy for cyber resilience would enable countries and organizations to systematically identify gaps and take appropriate protective measures while leveraging existing initiatives and programmes. Today, a lack of awareness, knowledge and skills often creates bottlenecks in this regard that must be overcome. While there is a consensus on the emerging global cyber challenges, even basic concepts in this realm are often not understood. Insufficient understanding of the nature of the risks, their causes and solutions are barriers to developing the strategic responses that are critical to building resilience in cyber space and successfully advancing the 2030 Agenda. 1 2 https://www.reuters.com/article/us-cyber-un-idUSKBN19Q19L https://www.itu.int/dms_pub/itu-d/opb/str/D-STR-GCI.01-2017-PDF-E.pdf 7 3. Objectives UN Cyber:Learn plans to achieve the following key objectives: 1. To drive awareness and action in support of achieving cybersecurity and technology related SDGs and targets by 2030 2. To help government officials and stakeholders to identify priorities and opportunities related to cybersecurity and emerging technologies, such as AI and 5G, in cities 3. To support cities and organizations to institutionalize cybersecurity and emerging technology related learning in a strategic fashion Note: In pursuing these objectives, emphasis is placed on making use of existing materials and initiatives of the UN system and partners to avoid duplication and fragmentation. 4. Implementation Strategy 4.1 Programme areas and timeframe UN Cyber:Learn will follow a two-fold approach aimed at (1) promoting knowledge exchange and strengthening individual capacities, and (2) strengthening institutional capacities. This is translated into two distinct Programme Areas: • • PROGRAMME AREA I - Global knowledge exchange and strengthening Individual capacities PROGRAMME AREA II - Strengthening institutional capacities 4.2 Description of major activities The following activities are planned per output: PROGRAMME AREA II - Global knowledge exchange and strengthening Individual capacities • Output 1.1: Priority countries and training needs Activity A: Selection of pilot countries and needs assessment Learn about the needs, context and priorities related to cybersecurity and emerging technologies by focusing on a low number of pilot countries. This will allow UNITAR and the donor to establish which approaches and methods are most appropriate, while also allowing the creation of effective training sessions that are directly aligned to the needs found on the field. • Output 1.2: High-visibility global knowledge platform Activity B: Development and maintenance of a high-visibility global knowledge platform 8 Development, maintenance, and promotion of the global knowledge platform (www.un-cyber-learn.org) with high visibility and a planned 100,000 unique visitors per year, and a user base of 85,000 registered users after three years. The platform aims to contribute to the awareness of and global information exchange between professionals and engaged individuals to foster understanding of cybersecurity for sustainable development leading to informed decisions and effective action. The platform will include: a. Knowledge sharing and management materials b. Access to training courses on relevant topics pertaining to financial inclusion and development A particular effort will be made to use existing materials in order to avoid fragmentation and duplication. • Output 1.3: Training toolbox on cyber resilience in cities Activity C: Development of a blended-learning training toolbox Development of a blended-learning training toolbox on cyber resilience at the local level. The toolbox consists of 4 e-learning courses, respective materials for 4 workshops, and supportive materials. The training toolbox covers topics that are critical to the skill development of public sector officials on the local level in the face of the growing issue of cyber security. Note: UNITAR, in consultation with UN Cyber:Learn partners and the donor, will decide on the course topics and learning objectives. The course titles below form a tentative list and are not necessarily representative of the final product. 1.) Cyber Resilience in Cities; 2.) Advanced Cyber Resilience in Cities; 3.) Cybersecurity in Businesses - Cybercrime, Regulations, the Human Factor; 4.) Cybersecurity and Emerging Technologies – AI, 5G, Smart Mobility, Blockchain; The learning offerings will strengthen the capacity of the target audience and ensure enhanced and uniform understanding of important issues and a comprehensive response. Each part of the toolbox (courses, workshop materials, supportive materials) will be filtered through a rigorous and pre-established quality assurance process. Partners to UN Cyber:Learn will contribute relevant content which will be pedagogically standardized by UNITAR. Note: All training materials will be made publicly available both as online tools and in printable form to ensure maximum flexibility. • Output 1.4: 480 beneficiaries trained through 8 online courses 9 Activity D: Implementation of online courses In addition to offering the learning materials through the online platform to a global audience, scholarships will be offered to a total of 480 beneficiaries (60 beneficiaries per course), to be selected by the donor. UNITAR will provide a list of proposed courses for the donor to select. This list will include (but may not necessarily be limited to) the 4 courses developed as part of this project. Certification: In accordance with the UNITAR Certification Policy, certificates of completion will be issued to participants having successfully completed the Programme. • Output 1.5: 200 participants trained through 8 Training of Trainers (ToT) Workshops on cyber resilience Background: enabling local authorities to conduct effective training to further strengthen capacities (Training of Trainers, ToT) The most promising candidates from the e-learning courses are to be selected by predefined standards. This group will receive additional training, in the form of ToT workshops, to further disseminate this knowledge in their organization or community. The ToT programme’s mission is to amplify the effect of a single course, broadening its reach, and in doing so train several others on the topic. This ensures that national or local governments have access to experts and mentors who can sustain the expertise gained through the training. It will also provide further opportunities to network and share experiences with similar professionals in the region. The ToT program is thus an essential aspect of capacity building, which seeks to: i) amplify the effect of a single training and ii) help decision makers adopt policy directions to strategically respond to issues at hand. Activity E: Implementation of ToT-Workshops Implementation of eight in-country Training-of-Trainers (ToT) Workshops in four countries. UNITAR and the donor will select, through pre-defined criteria, the 25 most promising candidates from the online courses each year, per workshop, for 8 workshops. The workshops are designed to be practical and results-oriented and include organizing a counselling and mentoring network. Sessions will focus on, among others, the linkages between cyber security and sustainable development, and actions to be taken on a strategic (city) level in response. The workshops will be interactive and participative. The methodology will include plenary sessions facilitated by experts, case studies, roundtable discussion on best practices, and group work. Note: Each workshop will be led by a national/regional cyber security expert and a senior international expert with in-depth experience in harnessing cybersecurity as a tool for sustainable development. This ToT approach has been 10 proven to be very effective in further disseminating knowledge in the target country or organization. Certification: In accordance with the UNITAR Certification Policy, certificates of completion will be issued to participants having successfully completed the Programme. PROGRAMME AREA II - Strengthening Institutional Capacities • Output 2.1: Global Forum on Resilience, Cybersecurity, and Cities Activity F: Implementation of the Global Forum on Resilience, Cybersecurity, and Cities The conference will take place at the European UN Headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland, with the objective of facilitating the exchange of best practices and will look into interconnections between resilience, cybersecurity, emerging technologies and the economy, as well as connections with the SDGs. The 1-day conference will bring together a pool of around 200 policy makers, practitioners, private sector representatives, development agencies, NGOs, and other interested stakeholders to exchange best practices on promoting cybersecurity. During the project period between 2019-2023, UNITAR proposes to convene one conference with a global scope aimed at bringing together officials and stakeholders from low-income countries and Least Developed Countries (LDCs). • Output 2.2: Centres of Excellence in Cybersecurity and Emerging Technologies Activity G: Establishment of three Centres of Excellence in Cybersecurity and Emerging Technologies The centres aim to support local governments in building strategic responses to the threat stemming from cyberspace and to the challenges and opportunities resulting from emerging technologies, such as AI and 5G. Activities will include, among others, online and face-to-face training sessions, exercises, research, and awareness raising events. The centres will be created in three strategic locations: - United States, Washington DC Switzerland, Geneva Middle East, TBD UN Cyber:Learn partners will identify an appropriate host-institution and partners for each centre and provide coordination and methodological support during its creation and subsequent activities. It is estimated that each centre will reach around 350 beneficiaries during the proposed project period. 11 • Output 2.3: Methodology (Guidance Note) for the development of Cyber Resilience Action Plans Activity H: Development of a Guidance Note Development of the underlying methodology for supporting countries in developing Cyber Resilience Action Plans is created by drawing on previous experiences of partners and by working closely with selected pilot countries. A Cyber Resilience Action Plan defines specific actions that can be taken in the short, medium and long-term. This includes, for example, the organization of specialized courses across sectors to prepare vulnerability assessments, or skills development activities to prepare proposals under existing or new international cyber security funding regimes. The Plan also includes actions that require more strategic planning and institutional change, such as the integration of cyber resilience learning into school curricula or the design of a sectoral skills development strategy. • Output 2.4: Cyber Resilience Action Plans implemented in five pilot partner city projects Activity I: Coordination and methodological support during pilot partner city project implementation Pilot projects are implemented in 5 cities over a period of 15 months. During implementation, UN Cyber:Learn will provide support in the form of: a) b) c) d) Supplying the methodology Supplying training materials Assisting with coordination Implementing a limited number of training activities. Cities are encouraged in an open call for proposals to seek the assistance of UN Cyber:Learn. Selected partner cities are supported by providing methodological and coordinative support. Additionally, a limited number of concrete learning actions are implemented in each partner city. The process of developing and implementing the Cyber Resilience Action Plan (hereafter referred to as the Action Plan) is conducted by national institutions and is linked to existing initiatives. This approach constitutes a city-driven process and assures city-ownership of the Action Plan. Each project will be undertaken through three stages which build upon and complement each other. - Stage 1: Project Inception, Awareness Raising & Knowledge Transfer (Month 1-3) During the first phase, an initial dialogue will take place with the Government and local partners to develop a common understanding of project objectives and to identify other organizations (i.e. education and training institutions) that will 12 actively participate in the project. This interaction, as well as a review of relevant documents, will generate an initial assessment of the status of cyber resilience capacity development activities in the city, including their training and skills development dimension. A local inception workshop on Strengthening Human Resources, Learning and Skills Development to Enhance Cyber Resilience will bring together representatives from key government sectors, different levels of government (i.e. national, sub-national and local level), national learning institutions, civil society, the private sector, UN agencies and other development partners that provide (or are interested in providing) assistance in the area of cyber resilience capacity development. The main objective of the workshop is to foster a discussion and stimulate a structured follow-up process to develop a strategy and action plan to strengthen human resources and skills to implement national, sub-national and local cyber resilience objectives. The workshop will be hosted by the local government, with technical and methodological support provided by Cyber:Learn. Participants are invited by the local government. An important outcome of the local workshop is a road map and division of responsibilities among national actors to prepare an Action Plan. If requested by a partner city, Cyber:Learn will support, in advance of the national workshop, a hands-on introductory cyber resilience learning session to take place over two to three days. The event will cover introductory topics of cyber resilience. Enhancing knowledge in this area is expected to help local partners develop the Action Plan in stage 2. - Stage 2: Development of an Action Plan to Strengthen Human Resources, Learning and Skills Development to Address Cyber Resilience (Month 49) The main objectives of the Action Plan are to identify, through a city-driven process, concrete learning action, both in the short and medium term, and develop policy recommendations with the goal to develop a sustainable human resource base to address challenges surrounding cybersecurity and emerging technologies. The Action Plan is developed through collaboration between the government and national/local learning and vocational institutions, as well as other interested and affected parties. An important dimension of the Action Plan is to mainstream cybersecurity learning within existing learning strategies and projects, wherever possible. The Action Plan document will be presented at a launching event which will bring together national and local decision makers, civil society, the private sector, UN agencies, and other members from the development community. At the launch event, commitment from different partners will be mobilized to support implementation of the recommended action. - Stage 3: Implementation of Advanced Learning Action (Month 10-15) 13 As a concrete follow-up to the launch of the Action Plan, Cyber:Learn, working in collaboration with other development partners, will support at least two identified advanced learning activities/actions. These will be executed by national/local partner institutions with Cyber:Learn and its network providing methodological and technical support. Activity J: Evaluation of Pilot Projects and updating of Guidance Note Three months following the completion of the pilot projects, an evaluation will take place to determine the extent to which the objectives of the project have been achieved. The evaluation will, inter alia: - - - Examine to what extent participants have started to apply their skills on the job; Examine if additional learning activities have been initiated; Examine if steps have been taken to consider strategic policy recommendations. Assist in further developing the methodology/guidance note. In parallel, opportunities will be explored to support other potentially interested cities, including a South-South partnership component. Note: Based on previous experience, it is estimated that each city project will reach around 250 beneficiaries. 4.3 Description of targeted beneficiaries The importance of capacity building in fostering cyber resilience has been documented by the cyber community, academia and policy makers. The UN Group of Governmental Experts on Developments in the Field of Information and Telecommunications in the Context of International Security emphasized the vital importance of capacity building to securing ICTs and their use. The International Telecommunication Union’s Cyber Security Index shows large deficits across many countries, predominately in the developing world, when it comes to preparing for cyber threats. Similarly, efforts aimed at protecting cyberspace often do not transcend the IT-departments and do not benefit from a strategic approach. Gaps in cybersecurity must be closed at the highest levels of nations and organizations. Today, a lack of awareness, knowledge and skills often form bottlenecks in this regard that must be overcome. 14 In response, UN Cyber:Learn will target the following key audiences: 5. Monitoring and Evaluation Project monitoring and evaluation of the services provided by UNITAR for the whole. The Project will be consistent with the requirements of UNITAR’s Monitoring and Evaluation Policy Framework. UNITAR will administer a questionnaire at the conclusion of each activity to obtain participant reactions on a number of key measures, including job relevance, newness of information, intent to use, overall usefulness and the degree to which learning objectives have been met. Results from the monitoring and evaluation of the project will be communicated to the donor and in the form of a project completion report which will record findings, conclusions, and recommendations. An evaluation of learning outcomes will also be administered amongst beneficiaries to assess strengthened knowledge and/or skills, equivalent to level 2 of the Kirkpatrick model. Additionally, an evaluation of institutional capacity outcomes (e.g. increased individual performance resulting from the application of knowledge, skills, awareness will be administered. 6. Reporting Narrative reporting: UNITAR will provide the Donor with a summary report at the end of every calendar year (i.e. 31 December 2019, 31 December 2020, 31 December 2021 (final report)). 15 Financial Reporting: UNITAR will provide the Donor with a final financial report, prepared in accordance with UNITAR’s financial regulations, rules, policies, procedures, and administrative instructions by 31 December 2022. 7. Managerial Arrangements This project will be implemented under the oversight of the Director of the Division for People of UNITAR. 8.
