CyberEYE, the Caribbean’s most advanced cybersecurity group, was officially launched on 06 December 2022 at the Hyatt Regency. The launch took place at Existential 2022, the first instalment of the Caribbean cybersecurity summit.

The goal of this summit was to create a global cyber security thought leadership forum for organisations in the Caribbean. The summit featured international keynote speakers Vincent R. Stewart, CyberEYE Director and Advisor, and Stuart Jubb, Crossword Plc Group Managing Director. Stewart is a retired US Marine Lieutenant General and Deputy Commander of the United States Cyber Command. Jubb is a former KPMG Associate Director of Defence and Security, who spent nine years as an officer in HM Forces, after Sandhurst, serving in Afghanistan, NATO and elsewhere. Both speakers reiterated the importance of organizations re-examining their cybersecurity defences and working to become more resilient to cyber-attacks.

In his speech, CyberEYE CEO Ian John noted that according to SonicWall’s 2022 Cyber Threat Report, there are over 28 million malware attacks blocked per day. John continued that, “Modern cybercrime is multifaceted extortion that steals and abuses your data while crippling your systems with ransomware. A single data breach can rip your reputation to shreds and expose your customers or your employees to identity theft and more. This data breach can result in hefty regulatory fines and class action lawsuits. Any digital transformation initiatives can be derailed.”

CyberEYE’s mission is to provide the people, policies, processes, and technologies to manage risk, detect and respond to any threats, to protect organizations, their critical systems and sensitive information from digital attacks. At the summit, CyberEYE services were unveiled to executives representing all the major industries in Trinidad and Tobago.

Ian John is well known in the local technology landscape. He is the former Senior Vice President and Regional CEO of Massy Technologies InfoCom, previously the largest ICT company in the Caribbean. He has over thirty years’ experience in the technology space, having sat on several Standard and Poor (S&P) 500 partner advisory boards and has led blue chip systems integration across industries in the region.

CyberEYE Chairperson Angela Lee Loy is another familiar face among local business leaders.

Nigel Salina, Chairman of Caribbean Business Leadership Forum, is also a CyberEYE Director.

At the summit, John also unveiled CyberEYE’s corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiative, “Crosswalk”. 72% of children around the world have experienced of least one type of cyber threat online. The “Crosswalk” initiative plays on the concept of pedestrian or zebra crossings being a safe space to traverse in an area where there will always be risks. CyberEYE’s intent is to contribute to creating safe spaces for children and teenagers to navigate cyberspace despite the risks that continue to be present. “Crosswalk” will focus on Cyber Safety Outreach aimed at the primary and secondary school aged students in T&T, with an education programme designed to equip parents and students with the knowledge and skills they need to stay safe in online environments.

“Crosswalk” is part of CyberEYE’s philosophy of servant leadership. The CyberEYE team hopes that “Crosswalk” will combat some of the most pernicious risks within cyberspace that impact children and teens, with a focus on cyberbullying, cybersecurity, child pornography, human trafficking, social media engineering, and cyber hygiene. Several private sector organizations have already partnered with CyberEYE on this initiative.
