Description

The adoption of new digital technologies allows for a more efficient management of critical infrastructures in terms of scale, distance, and time, but also introduces new vulnerabilities that make the protection of critical information infrastructures an important, and challenging task. The protection of information assets and systems that support and form critical infrastructures, i.e. the critical information infrastructures (CII), has therefore become a major concern for national security policies as new technologies are adopted. This report aims to reflect the experiences and practices of critical infrastructure and critical information infrastructure protection in Latin America and the Caribbean. As a region with a long history of cooperation and one of the first to cooperate on addressing cybersecurity threats, these learnings can be a valuable reference for the cybersecurity and critical infrastructure community as a whole.
