The “OAS Hemispheric Workshop on the Development of a National Framework for Cyber Security,” will be held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil from November 16 to 18, 2009.

The OAS Member States, through the Comprehensive Inter-American Strategy to Combat Threats to Cyber Security, adopted in 2004, have formally committed to strengthening cyber security and protecting critical infrastructure at the national and regional levels. Towards this end, and in accordance with the OAS Cyber Strategy, this Workshop will seek to further promote at the national and regional levels a collaborative approach to cyber security, one in which all relevant stakeholders are engaged and working together in a coordinated fashion.

Towards this end, the workshop will bring together a mix of national and international experts, as well as policy, regulatory, law enforcement, and technical level representatives working on the different aspects of cyber security and critical information infrastructure protection.

The workshop will thus provide a discussion-oriented forum for exchanging expertise, information, experiences, ideas, and innovative approaches for more effectively addressing cyber security at the national level. Each national delegation will be encouraged during the course of the workshop to prepare a draft action plan for establishing, developing and/or implementing a national framework or strategy for cyber security in their respective country.
