During Internet Week Trinidad and Tobago, held by the Caribbean Network Operators Group (CaribNOG), Google, the Internet Society, the Latin American and Caribbean Internet Registry (LACNIC), and the Ministry of Public Administration, parallel capacity building sessions were held. CaribNOG hosted its 16th regional meeting focused mainly on cybersecurity. Joint workshops by LACNIC and Google aimed to enhance local connectivity and strengthen the ecosystem for entrepreneurs. A LACNIC-Google two-day workshop covered the basics of Internet connectivity and traffic optimisation. The Internet Society highlighted the organisation’s ongoing global work in establishing community networks and strengthening the resiliency of telecommunications and computer networks. LACNIC led a closed-door cybersecurity workshop with the support of the office of the Attorney General and Ministry of Legal Affairs of Trinidad and Tobago, seeking to address emerging cybersecurity issues across the region and to establish computer security incident response teams (CSIRTs).
