Caribbean Commonwealth Cyber Security Workshop hosted in St Lucia

1 Mins read

St Lucia Times published an article on June 18, 2019, about the Caribbean Commonwealth Cybersecurity Workshop. Here’s a quick summary for you.

St Lucia hosted a pan-Caribbean and American Commonwealth workshop to promote National Computer Security Incident Response Teams (nCSIRTs). An nCSIRT is an entity that responds to national level cyber incidents and threats.

The workshop was hosted at Marigot Bay Resort and Marina sponsored by UK Foreign & Commonwealth Office’s (FCO) Commonwealth Cyber Programme and Singapore’s Cyber Security Agency.

Participants conducted table-top exercises exploring real-life cyber incident scenarios and how they would be dealt with in their respective countries. Expertise was also shared on planning or establishing an nCSIRT. The importance of nCSIRT development and measurement and developing national security was examined thoroughly.

St. Lucia presented its draft business plan for setting up an nCSIRT to partner nations, making nations without them see what a typical business plan entailed. Each country left the workshop with tangible action plans which they will develop. The workshop was beneficial for knowledge and experience sharing, forging international connections with partner nations, and build cooperation to increase regional resilience.
