By Dialogo
October 01, 2012

Representatives of 18 nations gathered July 10-13, 2012, in Montevideo to

coordinate and exchange cyber-security policies and best practices.

The workshop was conducted by the Cyber Crime Working Group of the

Organization of American States (OAS), the U.S. Departments of Justice and State,

and the Uruguayan Agency for Electronic Government. All Spanish-speaking OAS members

and Brazil took part.

Participants from the public and private sectors and civil society broke into

three simultaneous workshops to discuss incident response techniques, collaboration

on cyber issues, and securing critical infrastructure and industrial control systems

from cyber threats.

At week’s end, the working group prepared a report that stated that fraud,

money laundering, intellectual property and narcotrafficking are all related to the

flow of information on the Web.
