These activities point to the existence of significant cyber security vulnerabilities of persons, possessions and privacy. Critical national infrastructures such as water, telecommunications, energy and health systems are also at risk of being targeted. Cybercrime could have a devastating impact on national security and, if not addressed urgently, could severely hamper the social and economic development of our Caribbean States.
