U.S. Ambassador Margaret Ann Uyehara, Mayor of Municipality Niksic Veselin Grbovic and Director General of the Ministry of Science, Darko Petrusic opened the first Montenegrin Cyber Security Forum on October 20, in a newly opened Innovative Entrepreneurship Center – Tehnopolis – in Niksic, which also houses the Montenegrin Cyber Educational Center. At the occasion, Ambassador Uyehara underscored that today, building a culture of security in an organization is a must. “The cyber security challenge is complex and pervasive. In today’s world, where threats are dynamic and destructive, ensuring resilience while mitigating security risk is a challenge facing both governments and the private sector” said Ambassador Uyehara.
The aim of the Forum was to present ways of addressing cyber threats to the participants from business and public institutions and help them develop their capabilities in identifying and protecting from this global concern.
