During the pandemic, as people around the world became more dependent on technology for remote work and communication than ever before, cybersecurity attacks increased dramatically! More than 9.4 billion attempted cyberattacks occurred in Chile last year alone.
Cybercrime is not confined by national borders and exploits any vulnerability it can find in infrastructure, legal framework, and regulations. Cybersecurity is more important than ever, and countries like the United States and Chile must work together fight cybercrime to protect our citizens and our economies!
While this is a serious threat, there are solutions. This week, top executives from ten of the most innovative U.S. cybersecurity companies came to Chile as part of a U.S. Department of Commerce Trade Mission.
The visiting firms offer state of the art technologies, risk assessment, and training and they 65 one-on-one matchmaking meetings with Chilean companies and government officials to strengthen Chile’s defenses, minimize the costs of cyber breaches, and protect the Chilean people against future attacks.
