Deloitte’s Global Chief Information Officer, Larry Quinlan says that despite increased improvements in technology in the Caribbean and Latin America, the regions remain highly vulnerable to cyber-attacks.

Speaking earlier this week at the Prime Minister’s Independence Lecture Series as part of the activities to celebrate St. Kitts and Nevis’ 33rd Anniversary of Independence, he said “is a concern that will continue to grow worldwide and one that threatens to engulf us in developing countries if we’re not careful.”

Making reference to the 2016 Cybersecurity Report produced by the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) and the Organization of American States (OAS), the Deloitte executive, who is responsible for all facets of technology from strategy and applications to infrastructure and innovation at the multinational firm, said four out of every five countries in the region do not have a cyber-security strategy or plans for protecting critical infrastructure.

“Two out of every three countries do not have a command and control centre for cyber-security and a large number of prosecutors lack the capacity to punish cyber criminals,” Quinlan added.

He said cyber-crime has become far more sophisticated and strikes at the heart of businesses and governments.

I am not surprised by this fact. You know, judging by http://blog.qad.com/2017/05/cybersecurity-beware-ip-snatchers/ the whole world is under cyber threat. But developing countries don't have enough resources to resist it and that's why these regions are so vulnerable

Sure that is true, why is the White House and the political operative are constantly being hacked by Russians Operatives? We are all vulnerable if that's the case.
