The International Cyber Security Protection Alliance (ICSPA) (the global, business-led, not-for-profit Alliance) is calling on governments interested in providing a more safe and secure cyber future for their citizens and business communities, to fund programmes, projects and activities that will seek to ensure that their Internet users are “cyberfit” to meet the constantly evolving challenges brought about by the inexorable growth in online criminality.

Business led the way by establishing the ICSPA in July 2011; its Chief Executive, John Lyons, makes the case in this article, for international financial support from governments, in order to accelerate the execution of its mission – to reduce the harm from cyber criminality globally, by working with governments, law enforcement agencies and businesses to provide sustainable solutions in the fight against cyber crime.
