Bahamas improves its cyber security competence

Illinois ness Today posted an article on April 19, 2021, about the Bahamas improves its cyber security competence. Below are some key highlights:

  • The country’s Computer Incident Response Team (CIRT) supports governments by building national cybersecurity expertise, bridging human resource gaps, and supporting cybersecurity frameworks and policy development
  • The Bahamas has launched a project with the ITU to set up a national Computer Incident Response Team (CIRT) to help protect the critical digital infrastructure and data of small island developing states
  • The Bahamas, like other small island developing states in the Caribbean, needs to provide a secure online environment that minimizes the risks associated with providing online services
  • The project is expected to be fully implemented by the end of 2022, and interim steps, including 6 months of ITU support, will help CIRT mature
  • Ramos added that national CIRT skills and tools need to be constantly updated. “It is important to equip our response teams with new technologies, deploy additional services, provide technical training, and coordinate and collaborate with other international organizations.”
