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 defenses 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.

After achieving its primary mission to strengthen the cybersecurity defenses of thousands of activists and journalists in dozens of countries, ISC was also able to successfully finance technology upgrades across a broad range of Local Partners, build awareness and community through the convening of annual workshops, and support grass roots advocacy for cyber liberty.
