The GFCE Secretariat facilitates the GFCE Working Groups by providing organizational, administrative and coordination support. Working Groups were established in 2018, following the GFCE Community’s endorsement of the Delhi Communiqué on a Global Agenda for Cyber Capacity Building.

They are the GFCE’s driving force to coordinate and improve global cyber capacity building efforts. Based on the thematic priorities identified in the Delhi Communiqué, the Working Groups are organized along the listed themes of Cyber Security Policy & Strategy, Cyber Incident Management & Critical Information Infrastructure Protection, Cybercrime, Cyber Security Culture & Skills, and Cybersecurity Standards.

GFCE Members & Partners collaborate with each other through the Working Groups, with over 85% of the community involved in at least one group. Within their subject area, the working groups were initially established to provide an overview of the global needs and current or planned projects while involving important stakeholders, to discuss ambitions for the implementation of capacity building efforts and set goals and milestones to achieve this. Working groups are encouraged to share minutes, relevant documents, and results with the GFCE community.

For coherence and synergy, the activities of Working Groups are divided across common goals of avoiding duplication of efforts (Coordination), improving the efficiency and effectiveness of CCB projects and filling knowledge gaps (Knowledge Sharing), filling capacity gaps (Match Making) and collaborating on new projects within the GFCE community (Collaboration).
