The National Cybersecurity Center (CNCS) of the Dominican Republic has entered into two significant agreements for cooperation in cybersecurity. One memorandum of understanding was signed with Costa Rica’s Ministry of Science, Innovation, Technology and Telecommunications (MICITT), while another was established with Panama’s National Cybersecurity Center, which falls under the Government Innovation Agency.

These agreements, formalized in Costa Rica, aim to facilitate bilateral cooperation by enabling the exchange of information concerning cybersecurity policies and best practices. The goal is to enhance global cybersecurity measures. These international initiatives align with the National Cybersecurity Strategy and are consistent with the 2030 Digital Agenda and the National Digital Transformation Strategy.

The executive director of CNCS, Juan Gabriel Gautreaux, signed these agreements alongside Juan Anria of Panama and Paula Bogantes, Costa Rica’s MICITT minister. Gautreaux emphasized that these collaborations set the stage for innovation, development, and security within the digital realm of the region.
