The debates of the First National Workshop on Informatization and Cybersecurity, sessioning in Havana, restarted today in the Investigations Center of Integrated Technologies (Spanish: Centro de Investigaciones de Tecnologías Integradas CITI), in the Polytechnic University José Antonio Echeverría (Spanish: Instituto Superior Politécnico José Antonio Echeverría CUJAE).

Starting last Wednesday, the event brings to the discussion table important topics like the informatization of the Cuban society as a guarantee of well-being and sustainable development for the nation.

Gathered in commissions, around 260 experts will debate in the CITI four essential topics: the human and scientific resources the country has, electronic government, informatics security and economy and legality.

The workshop has its genesis in different events that have been taking place since last August, and it intends to establish some basic elements Cuba needs in order to bring the new technologies closer to the population.

The organizers said to the press that the experts of the sector started from the concept that it is not possible to have a prosperous and sustainable society without subordinating to such objectives the tools that guarantee access to knowledge, efficiency, productivity and excellency. 

Besides the analysis among participants, it is also in session a discussion forum opened in the web www.mincom.gob.cu, where a group of professionals linked to the new technologies will answer to the concerns and questions of those who decide to participate.

The Cuban government´s national priority is to lead the informatization of the country towards economic and social growth, starting from the consolidation of the software production industry to decrease imports in this sector and increase exports.
