The three-day meeting, sponsored by the Latin American and Caribbean parliaments, aimed to raise awareness at the political level of cyber threats.
Alejo Campos, regional technical director of Crime Stoppers and chief technical organizer of the meeting, told reporters that the program aims to make it a public policy of the Ministries of Education of the regional countries.
The expert also suggested the need to update the model law that Barlatino holds on cybercrime and cybercrime.
On the other hand, he commented that in connection with the criminalization of cyber crimes, it is recommended to emphasize the prevention and educational nature of new activities above all, thus avoiding crime.
Experts told the forum that the fight against cybercrime continues to be one of the most complex challenges for national authorities.
At the meeting, President Parlatino, Silvia Giacoppo of Argentina, pointed out that one-third of Latin American countries have no legal framework against computer crimes and only five countries in the region adhere to the Budapest Convention.
Other team members commented that the authorities had found that companies affected by this type of crime did not want to report it in order to avoid damaging their reputation. Citizens do not do that, often because they fear that the government will seize their information without trust or permission from the authorities, they commented.
In Panama, attacks on emails and cyber fraud against the private sector are the most common crimes, which are on the rise.
In addition to the regional office of Burlatino and Crime Stoppers, the forum was organized by the International Republican Organization of the Conrad Adinavar Foundation and regional project partnerships for democracy and development with Latin America.
