LACNIC WARP Report: 5 Years Managing Cybersecurity

To mark its fifth anniversary, LACNIC's Warning, Advice and Reporting Point (WARP) is publishing a report with valuable information on its first five years of operation.

Created in 2014 to meet the growing demands of the technical community, LACNIC WARP has achieved regional and international recognition for strengthening security incident prevention, detection and response capabilities throughout the region.

Over the past five years, LACNIC WARP has trained 800 cybersecurity experts and managed 600 major computer security incidents in Latin America and the Caribbean. In addition, it has organized 19 AMPARO workshops around the region for the purpose of strengthening and promoting Computer Security Incident Response Teams (CSIRTs).

In coordination with other entities devoted to the prevention of cyberattacks, the LACNIC WARP team has published more than 25 security alerts regarding events considered to be critical.

The professional work of the WARP team has allowed it to join the global elite of organizations working in computer security. In this sense, LACNIC has signed cooperation agreements with several renowned organizations: FIRST,, Message, Mobile, Malware Anti Abuse Working Group (M3AAWG), AntiPhishing Working Group (APW), Stop, Think & Connect (STC), and Team Cymru.

The network comprised by these international organizations “has resulted in closer, more reliable relationships among its members, greater communication speed and efficiency, and a fruitful exchange of information,” Martinez added.

During these five years, LACNIC WARP has been managed considering the pillars promoted by LACNIC to contribute to a stable, open, continuously growing and particularly more secure Internet.
