Uruguay: Cyber Security Best Practices
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.
