CyberBRICS

cyberBRICS

The CyberBRICS project has a triple aim: to map existing regulations; to identify good practices and develop policy suggestions in the areas of i) cybersecurity and personal data regulations; ii) connectivity and digital transformation; and iii) artificial intelligence governance and industrial policy in the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa).

The project is hosted by the CTS-FGV, the Center for Technology and Society at Fundação Getulio Vargas (FGV) Law School, Rio de Janeiro, and developed in partnership with the Higher School of Economics, Moscow; Jindal Global Law School and the Centre for Internet and Society, India; the Fudan University, Shanghai, and the Hong Kong University; and the Nelson Mandela University and Research ICT Africa, South Africa.
