The Information Safety & Capacity (Isc) Project Final Report

Designed and implemented by Counterpart International to protect the online safety of developing-world civil society, including non-governmental organizations and independent media outlets, the Information Safety & Capacity Project (ISC) was launched in October 2011 with a distinct mission to strengthen the cybersecurity defences of thousands of activists and journalists in dozens of countries. In later years, the addition of pro-cyberliberty policy advocacy to the ISC’s mandate further broadened its support for civil society, including strengthening the work of policy advocates and the advocacy capacity of non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and improving regulatory environments that determine online freedom.
