Cisco and the Organization of American States (OAS) created the ‘Cybersecurity Innovation Councils,’ an initiative that will seek to democratise and boost cyber-security adoption across Latin America. It will serve as multi-stakeholder spaces in which leaders and experts from the private sector, public sector, academia, NGOs and security technology vendors will collaborate to drive innovation, raise awareness, and expand best practices, aiming to help solve digital risks and challenges affecting the digital society.

In addition to the ‘Cybersecurity Innovation Councils,’ both Cisco and the OAS are leveraging Cisco Networking Academy in Latin America to promote educational resources that can help close the professional skills gap in cyber-security.

Cisco and the OAS will deploy their expertise and leverage the regional footprint to lead important dialogue that will generate outputs in order to address cyber-security challenges in Latin America. Cyber-security is a foundational Cisco tenet to help transform digital businesses.
