This report, a joint effort between the Korea Internet & Security Agency (KISA) and Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), emphasizes the rising importance of critical infrastructure protection for the Latin American and Caribbean (LAC) region and proposes ways to overcome existing and potential cybersecurity threats. Considering the unexpected and high-speed transformations brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, it is important to get prepared for imminent threats. The report examines the status of information and communication technology (ICT) infrastructure protection in the region and suggests big data analysis as a solution. To make the case, the report discusses the role of Koreas Big Data Analysis Center in protecting critical infrastructures in the country and makes suggestions to build an institutional foundation, stronger governance, and an effective roadmap for the implementation of a similar center in the LAC region.
