Digital Connectivity and Cybersecurity Partnership

Launched in July 2018, the Digital Connectivity and Cybersecurity Partnership (DCCP) is a whole-of-government initiative that aims to:

  • Build connections by promoting investments in secure, pro-competitive ICT infrastructure
  • Advance open Internet by promoting inclusive, rights-respecting, multi-stakeholder models of Internet governance and pro-competitive, pro-innovation digital economy policies and regulations
  • Grow global markets for U.S. ICT goods and services, especially high-quality, interoperable, secure ICT equipment, software, and services
  • Enhance cybersecurity by increasing adoption and implementation of cybersecurity best practices

DCCP works with partner countries to support the development of communications infrastructure; promote transparent regulatory policies for open, competitive markets; and build partners’ cybersecurity capacity to address shared threats through engagement with the private sector, government, and civil society. USAID is implementing several DCCP activities through the Digital Frontiers mechanism. Learn more about DCCP here.
