Information Security Awareness Week & Technical Expo Central Bank of The Bahamas June 25th - 27th, 2019

The Central Bank of The Bahamas is pleased to announce its 6th Annual Information Security Awareness Week, under the theme, "Be Secure: at Home, at Work, at Play."

With the rapidly evolving digital space, the Bank believes that information security is our shared responsibility, and it is an integral part of building a strong cybersecurity workforce to better protect families, communities, businesses, and the country's infrastructure. Of equal importance is the need to develop an awareness, among employees and the general public, of the need for confidentiality and integrity in access and use of data.

The goal of this event is to provide participants with the knowledge to protect information systems and sensitive data from cybersecurity threats. Additionally, we aim to promote industry standards and best practices, while providing the necessary tools to be more secure online. Through this event, the Bank highlights its commitment to information security awareness, data protection, education and building awareness around the broad array of cybersecurity risks.

This year, the Bank introduced Cybersecurity Teens' Day to its agenda of events. This half-day program is intended to increase the awareness of cybersecurity threats and is designed to teach our young people the behaviours required to maintain a healthy digital lifestyle. The program content includes cyber threats, online safety, social media etiquette, cybersecurity careers, and more.

The week will culminate with an information security fair and technical expo, with information security vendors discussing the latest technologies and cybersecurity trends.
