Cyber Capacity Support

Technology simply creates opportunity. Every thriving nation with prosperous economies, transparent governments and free societies has digital infrastructure weaved into its DNA. VIA firmly believes that the effective and secure use of cyberspace will allow all people to participate in today’s global community. This project is underway and as it continues, more details will be outlined.

About the Project

VIA Consulting Group has been awarded $2.9M project to further progress in developing nations through maximizing their capacity in the areas of cyberspace and cyber security.

VIA’s expertise was sought out as the United States Agency for International Development defined an International Cyberspace Program. In partnership with USAID, VIA will work internationally to promote an open communications infrastructure that supports international trade and commerce, strengthens international security, and fosters innovation.

Cyberspace and Cybersecurity assessments executed by VIA will provide cyber capacity-building support in various countries around the world.

VIA realizes that in this rapidly evolving world of cyberspace, it’s critical that the approaches and solutions are both adaptable and innovative. Our work in support of USAID’s International Cyberspace Program will foster the acceleration of progress in developing nations.

* Definition of cyberspace: The complex environment resulting from the interaction of people, software and services on the Internet by means of technology devices and networks connected to it, which does not exist in any physical form

Europe and Eurasia (E&E)

USAID responds to opportunities and challenges in Europe and Eurasia (E&E) through innovative programs on behalf of the American people. VIA built IT systems and infrastructure to help the USAID’s Europe and Eurasia (E&E) Bureau formulate budgets, manage program activities and to meet congressionally mandated reporting requirements.

Our Impact

VIA identified and built IT systems currently being utilized by the USAID’s Europe and Eurasia (E&E) Bureau.

The new system built by VIA incorporated streamlined processes, completely operational throughout the organization and not dependent on full time IT resources.

New workflows were created by VIA to support multi-stakeholder collaborative efforts for assessments, data gathering, information sharing, and maximum end user participation regardless of location.
