SANTA CRUZ DE TENERIFE, March 14. (EUROPE PRESS) –
The president of the Cabildo of El Hierro and president of the Fecai, Alpidio Armas, has proposed the adhesion of the Cabildo of El Hierro and the rest of the island institutions to the cybersecurity project of the Cabildo of Tenerife.
The Cabildo de Tenerife signed a four-year cybersecurity agreement with the National Cryptologic Center, dependent on the National Intelligence Center, which includes the exchange of technical information on the security of systems, services and networks and the promotion of development security tools and specific programs.
It also includes actions for the implementation and operation of a virtual cybersecurity operations center (VSOC) -already in operation- that significantly increases the current surveillance and threat detection capabilities in the daily operation of the systems and information and communications of the adhered entities, as well as the improvement of its response capacity in the face of any attack.
The General Assembly of the Canary Islands Federation (FECAI) held an ordinary meeting today, Monday, at the headquarters of the Cabildo de El Hierro, whose head chairs the General Assembly of the councils during this semester.
The need to redesign the economic management of Fecai itself has also been discussed, with greater effectiveness and economic efficiency in order to address the creation of new commissions that allow dealing with new realities of maximum interest to the Islands and that must be dealt with by the Assembly, Alpidio Armas declared after the meeting.
“It has become evident – affirms the president of the Fecai – the concern of the Councils about the progress in the search for solutions to give continuity to the Canary Islands Development Fund (FDCAN), especially for those councils that already have been terminated and some of which already demand a second fund for this important instrument that has allowed the development of employment-generating investments in the Islands”.
The General Director of Research and Coordination of Sustainable Development of the Government of the Canary Islands also spoke on the Agenda of the meeting in relation to the Canary Agenda for Sustainable Development 2030, while the designation of the Fecai in the Trade Observatory was discussed. .
In addition, the Assembly took into consideration the writings received from the Vice-Ministry of Tourism regarding the ordinary call for the Tourism Sustainability Plans Program in Destination 2022 charged to European funds and, from the Canarian Institute of Cultural Development of the Government of the Canary Islands, proposal for the signing of a collaboration agreement with the Fecai for the promotion of the cultural activity organized by the Cabildos.
The Federation has received, in turn, an official letter from Promotur Turismo de Canarias regarding the call for sponsorships with public entities for face-to-face events that generate advertising returns that are held between March 1 and November 30 of this year.
On the other hand, the Canarian Federation of Islands approved in the session to demand information from the Government of the Canary Islands on competences in matters of Coasts and Roads, among others.
