With the advent of the Internet and its extensive use over the past decade in the region, came new threats and ways of committing crimes. In order to support member states in their fight against cyber crime, the Organization, through the Inter-American Committee against Terrorism (CICTE) and the Cyber Security Program, is committed to developing and furthering the cyber security agenda in the Americas. Cooperating with a wide range of national and regional entities from the public and private sectors on both policy and technical issues, the OAS seeks to build and strengthen cyber-security capacity in the member states through technical assistance and training, policy roundtables, crisis management exercises, and the exchange of best practices related to information and communication technologies.
