This initiative is based on the Cybersecurity Capacity Maturity Model for Nations (CMM) which was developed by the Global Cyber Security Capacity Centre (GCSCC) and initiated by the following members and partners of the Global Forum on Cyber Expertise (GFCE): United Kingdom, Norway, Organization of American States, and the Capacity Centre itself.

It aims to assist countries in understanding their priorities for investment and development by outlining the key elements necessary to respond to cyber incidents using five dimensions. The UK Government has provided funding to the GCSCC to develop CMM to provide a framework for benchmarking progress. International organisations such as the OAS, has seen value in the expertise that the Centre can provide, and have used the model to assess cybersecurity maturity in the member states (read the report Are We Ready in Latin America and the Caribbean?) The Governments of the UK and Norway have continued their support to promote the GCSCC and its tools to be utilized more widely.
