This important offer led in 2020 to the establishment of Cybersec Costa Rica, the first cybersecurity hub in Central America, which is formed by private companies, the academy, business associations and government institutions. In the country, more than 2000 people work in cybersecurity services, such as incidents response, security platform management and vulnerability management.
USA is the main destination for Costa Rican 4.0 technologies related exports. The similar time zone with USA, the highly skilled Costa Rican workforce (#1 in ICT skills in Latin America, Network Readiness Index 2020) and also english proficient (#2 in Latin America, EF English Proficiency Index 2020) are some of the reasons that explain why important USA companies have preferred Costa Rican based companies for their cybersecurity services.
