The government has pledged £100,000 to the Council of Europe's Global Project on Cybercrime that is aimng to crack down on online criminals and the threats they pose to web users and businesses.
The funding was announced by foreign secretary William Hague and forms part of the nation's commitment to help tackle cyber crime with other leading nations as set out in the Budapest Convention on Cybercrime.
"At the London Conference on Cyberspace I made clear that the rapid rise of cyber crime is a growing threat to people across the world and the need for co-ordinated response to improve security, enhance co-operation between states and ensure a collective undertaking to address this threat," he said.
"I am therefore delighted the UK will be supporting the Council of Europe Global Project on Cybercrime. This will bring real benefits - including by working together with entrepreneurs and companies whose innovation is as crucial to the future as it has been to our past."
The funding will be used to help set up international regional workshops to look at issue such as strengthening legislation, train law enforcement agencies and the judiciary, promote public-private cooperation and drive further international cooperation.
The Council of Europe Global Project on Cybercrime has already supported 250 activities across the globe to promote the Budapest Convention, the government said.
Previously, the government has estimated the cost of cyber-crime to the nation's economy could be as high as £27bn.
