Broadband Policies for Latin America and the Caribbean

A Digital Economy Toolkit

This joint initiative by the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) and the OECD seeks to encourage the expansion of broadband networks and services in the region, supporting a coherent and cross-sectorial approach, to maximise their benefits for economic and social development. Drawing on a wealth of experience from LAC and OECD countries, the Toolkit outlines the main policy objectives in this area and provides guidance for their measurement, an overview of developments in the region, and a compilation of good practices in several areas related to broadband policy making. 
This comprehensive volume encompasses a wealth of areas including digital strategies, regulatory frameworks, spectrum management, competition and infrastructure bottlenecks, broadband access, affordability, sector taxation, inclusion, convergence, regional integration, education, skills, business uptake, entrepreneurship, local content, e-health, digital government, consumer policy, and digital security and privacy.

Hide / Show Abstract

This chapter focuses on public policies to manage digital security. It first distinguishes digital security risk management from other aspects of cybersecurity related to technology, law enforcement, national security and defence. Next, it introduces the key elements of national strategies that can create framework conditions to increase trust for all stakeholders using ICTs, and for the digital environment for economic and social prosperity. The chapter surveys existing measurement and impact assessment tools and provides an overview of public policy efforts in the LAC region. Finally, it introduces selected good practices.
