US, Kuwait Seek Stronger Partnership on Cybersecurity

James Holtsnider, charge d’affaires of the U.S. embassy in Kuwait, met with Maj. Gen. Eng. Mohamed Bouarki, head of Kuwait’s National Center for Cybersecurity, to talk about strengthening mutual cyber efforts.

Speaking to the press, Holtsinder said the two countries would team up to develop Kuwaiti cybersecurity infrastructure and protect critical facilities and communication networks from threats. He explained that strong cyber defenses drive technological advancements and digital interdependence, leading to economic and scientific gains.

According to Holtsnider, the national cybersecurity strategy released by the White House in March prioritizes cooperation with allies to promote “a defensible, resilient and value-compliant digital ecosystem.” He said the goal is to create an environment that rewards responsible behavior.

Holtsnider promised that the United States will provide American cybersecurity experts to NCSC. He highlighted available resources such as free online training from the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency as an example of U.S. offerings, Zawya reported Sunday.
