Cybersecurity: Risks, Progress and the Way Forward in Latin America & the Caribbean

I will be chairing this Global Cyber Forum on 21 October 2020, where we will be discussing the state of cybersecurity capacities and capabilities across the Caribbean region.

Our speaker will be Kerry-Ann Barrett, Cybersecurity Policy Specialist at the Organization of American States (OAS), where she offers technical assistance to Member States in the development and implementation of their national cyber security strategies as well as assists in the implementation of various technical projects with the OAS Cybersecurity Program.

The overall basis for the session will be the 2020 Cybersecurity Report prepared by the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), Organization of American States (OAS), and the Global Cyber Security Capacity Centre, University of Oxford. Our discussions will focus on the progress made thus far across the Caribbean, and what steps are necessary to move to the next level, including key areas such as national cybersecurity strategies, related action plans, or other cybersecurity capacity-building programs.

Tune in for what will be an engaging and informative session!
