CYBER Breakfast – Annual General Meeting

The National Cybersecurity Coordination Centre (NCC) organized its third CYBER Breakfast on June 27th, 2023. The event included an Annual General Meeting held at AX Palace. During the event, the new Consultation Council was unveiled. This administrative and advisory body aims to shape the future of cybersecurity practices in the country from 2023 to 2025. The council is composed of 13 members representing different streams and sectors, each contributing within their respective expertise to benefit the community.

The new council was inaugurated by Jonathan Cassar, the CTO and Head of the Information Security and Governance Department at MITA, assuming the role of Chair. With his expertise in future technological capabilities and alignment with business needs and national strategies, he is a perfect fit for the position. Additionally, Katia Bonello was appointed as Secretary, and Kirsten Cremona as Advisor. Together, they form a capable team that will navigate the complex cybersecurity landscape.

Furthermore, the meeting discussed future plans including the upcoming election of the Vice Chair. The council will also establish working groups to enhance collaboration and incorporate the Consultation Council as a governing body within the community. The council’s objective is to expand Malta’s cyberspace and serve as an example for other countries.

The NCC encourages individuals and entities interested in contributing to and strengthening Malta’s cybersecurity landscape to become members of the community. Through the collective expertise and resources of its members, this community aims to address the challenges of the digital age, build trust among stakeholders, and ensure a safer cyber environment for all.
