Protocol Partners-Washington Center for Protocol Selected by The Diplomatic Academy of the Caribbean to Launch New Seminar

Seminar Titled: Protocol and Diplomatic Law: Rules and Procedures

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwired - August 21, 2014) - Protocol Partners-Washington Center for Protocol (Washington, D.C.) was invited to join a collaboration with The Diplomatic Academy of the Caribbean, The University of the West Indies (UWI), and The Republic of Trinidad and Tobago in the development and delivery of a training module entitled "Protocol and Diplomatic Law: Rules and Procedures." Focusing on diplomatic protocol as a means to establish, maintain, and enhance relationships, the goal of the training was to educate current and prospective diplomats and others engaged in international relations and international business in the essentials of protocol, the basics of diplomatic law, relevant codes of conduct and business etiquette, and internationally accepted "best practices" in the field.

Launched in July 2014, The Diplomatic Academy of the Caribbean, a global academy for Caribbean Diplomacy and the first of its kind in the region, seeks to provide learning and training to a cross-section of target groups and beneficiaries involved in international cooperation negotiations and transactions within the CARICOM region and beyond. It is a joint initiative of UWI and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of The Republic of Trinidad and Tobago.

"We understand that hearts and minds are won by how we shake hands, bow, or otherwise show respect to our international guests. Knowing the right way to communicate our respect matters, and that is why we engaged the respected leaders in the field of protocol education, Protocol Partners-Washington Center for Protocol, to launch this important initiative," stated Debra Coryat-Patton, Coordinator, The Diplomatic Academy of the Caribbean. "Our Academy was founded on the belief that the future generation of diplomats in this region can compete with any other diplomats from any part of the globe."

During the period 23 June to 4 July, founding partner, Gary Biggs, and senior associate, Lawrence Dunham, delivered two, one-week training modules at the Academy's St. Augustine campus to over 120 attendees representing a cross-section from both the public and private sectors. Senior government and international officials were present to support and participate in a number of the module's sessions.

The course examined principles, traditions and best practices of protocol and global business etiquette and how they relate to the conduct of diplomacy, international business and other transactions involving international participants. The course provided participants with an understanding of protocol fundamentals such as order of precedence, titles and forms of address, position of honor, as well as knowledge to avoid professional and diplomatic pitfalls. Plans are underway to offer the course again at the St. Augustine campus in Port of Spain and at other UWI campuses throughout the Caribbean.

Enterprises are moving to the cloud faster than most of us in security expected. CIOs are going from 0 to 100 in cloud adoption and leaving security teams in the dust. Once cloud is part of an enterprise stack, it’s unclear who has responsibility for the protection of applications, services, and data. When cloud breaches occur, whether active compromise or a publicly accessible database, the blame must fall on both service providers and users. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben Johnson, C...

Today traditional IT approaches leverage well-architected compute/networking domains to control what applications can access what data, and how. DevOps includes rapid application development/deployment leveraging concepts like containerization, third-party sourced applications and databases. Such applications need access to production data for its test and iteration cycles. Data Security? That sounds like a roadblock to DevOps vs. protecting the crown jewels to those in IT.
