A more secure, reliable and resilient cyberspace
Organized by the National Cryptologic Center (CCN), the National Institute of Cybersecurity (Incibe) and the Joint Cyberspace Command (MCCE) of Spain together with the National Department of Investigations (DNI) of the Dominican Republic, the III STIC Conference was inaugurated by Raquel Peña, vice president of the Caribbean country, and Antonio Pérez-Hernández y Torra, ambassador of Spain.
In the case of the former, she noted that meetings like the one in Punta Cana “help to strengthen the technological infrastructures of all Ibero-America to jointly achieve a safer, more reliable and resilient cyberspace”.
For his part, the ambassador called for the promotion of awareness, training and cooperation in the field of cybersecurity in Ibero-America. This should be based on “deep and close historical, cultural and linguistic ties”.
The program was organized around three modules: International, Cooperation and Institutional -the latter dedicated to cybersecurity in the Dominican Republic-. It was completed with a series of workshops and a space managed by Incibe.
During the III STIC Dominican Republic Chapter Conference, numerous topics of interest were addressed, ranging from defense against advanced persistent threats to the important work of CSIRTs, as well as national cybersecurity governance models. And the program was closed by Esperanza Casteleiro, director of Spain’s National Intelligence Center (CNI).
The latter pointed out that “the CCN has been advocating the creation of a single cybersquad of which we are all a part. And with the holding of this conference, progress has been made towards achieving this objective, which I know has been joined by new actors to form part of this complex and, at the same time, exciting project”.
