The capacity building workshop organized by the GFCE (Global Forum on Cyber Expertise) Triple I (Internet Infrastructure Initiative) took place on Monday, August 5 in La Paz, Bolivia, bringing together regional actors prior to the official opening of the LACIGF 12. The event was coordinated and supported jointly by LACTLD, LACIGF Program Committee, LACNIC, LAC-AAWG, NIC.br, ICANN, Internet Society Bolivia Chapter, and the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy.
The first edition of the LAC Workshop brought together regional and global experts, government, the private sector, the technical community, and various stakeholder groups in order to seek solutions for strengthening the security of the Internet and its infrastructure. One of the main goals was to foster capacity building and inspire joint actions that would raise confidence in the use of the Internet in the region.
Workshop participants had the opportunity to share information and knowledge on open Internet standards such as DNSSEC, TLS, DANE, RPKI, ROA, DMARC, DKIM, SPF and IPv6. They were also able to learn a series of best practices that helped improve reliability of the Internet and collaborative security. Among them were anti-abuse initiatives; CERTs collaboration; and the secure deployment of IoT.
Since 2018, the GFCE Triple I initiative has organized in each region a series of meetings and workshops in coordination with the various stakeholders in order to find solutions for strengthening an open end-to-end Internet at both global and local levels.
