APNIC staff were among the 250-plus attendees at the Pacific Islands Telecommunications Association’s (PITA) 21st AGM in Raratonga, Cook Islands, last month.

The four-day meeting was opened by Cook Islands Prime Minister, Henry Puna, who said PITA played an important role in providing a discussion forum for telecommunications in the Pacific, and provided the Pacific’s voice in the international communications environment.

Themes discussed during the meeting included the need for cybersecurity awareness among Pacific nations, and information on cable roll-outs, including updates on recent projects connecting the Cook Islands and Vanuatu.

APNIC activities:

  • Elly Tawhai spoke at the cybersecurity session on APNIC’s security initiatives, discussing the importance of incident response and training activities that APNIC was involved in, including the new APNIC Academy Introduction to Cybersecurity course.

  • Elly also met several APNIC Members attending the event, assisting them with updating their Whois details and discussing their resource and training requirements.
