During the week of November 6, the Perry Center traveled to Santiago Chile to conduct a series of outreach activities including a 3-day cybersecurity seminar “Protection of Critical Information Infrastructure” co-sponsored and organized with the Chilean Undersecretary of Defense. Invited participants from the military, Carabineros (police) and several ministries and governmental agencies actively engaged in lectures and small group discussions throughout the three-day event.
Additionally, the Perry Center met with ANEPE Director Ronald McIntyre and his leadership team and discussed future programming and opportunities for continued collaborations. ANEPE also hosted two academic events, one for Perry Center alumni and a second activity for the ANEPE community. Boris Saavedra and Celina Realuyo provided lectures on the Russia – Ukraine and Israel – Gaza Strip conflicts and their impact on the Americas, as well as international trends in cybersecurity. The Perry Center team ended the week visiting the Academia de Ciencias Policías-Carabineros de Chile (Academy of Police Sciences – Chilean Carabineros) ACIPOL and met with ACIPOL Rector Coronel Claudio Henriquez and his team to discuss future academic exchanges.
