cyberBRICS

The CyberBRICS project has a triple aim: to map existing regulations; to identify best practices and develop policy suggestions in the areas of cybersecurity governance (including personal data regulation), Internet access policy and strategies for the digitalisation of public administrations in the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa).

The project is hosted by Fundação Getulio Vargas (FGV) Law School and developed in partnership with the Higher School of Economics, in Moscow, Russia; the Centre for Internet and Society, New Delhi, India; the Fudan University, Shanghai, and the Hong Kong University, China; and the University of Cape Town, Cape Town, South Africa.
