Le Royaume-Uni et le Maroc ambitionnent d'approfondir leur collaboration dans le domaine de la cybersécurité
Morocco and the United Kingdom expressed, Wednesday, December 8, 2021, in London, their ambition to deepen their dialogue and collaboration in the "increasingly important" field of cybersecurity.

In a joint statement at the end of the Morocco-GB strategic dialogue, the two countries agreed to participate constructively in efforts to develop a new international convention on cybercrime to ensure that it is inclusive, results-oriented and protects human rights.

The British Foreign Minister, Ms. Liz Truss, and Minister of Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation and Moroccan Expatriates, MFA Nasser Bourita reaffirmed, in this sense, their support for a free, open, peaceful and secure cyberspace.

The UK Home Office and Morocco's Directorate General for Information Systems Security (DGSSI) will complete their groundbreaking work on a joint integrated cyber analysis project that will provide a package of strategic cybersecurity capacity-building assistance, the statement said.

Morocco is the first country with which the United Kingdom and its partners, namely the International Telecommunication Union and Oxford University, have established such a relationship, the document noted.

As a continuation of these efforts, the two countries announced the upcoming opening of a new Center of excellence in Cyber Security for Africa in Morocco, the result of a partnership between British and Moroccan companies and universities.
