This book stems from the CyberBRICS project, which is the first initiative to develop a comparative analysis of the digital policies and regulations of the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) countries.
Given the complexity of digital policies in general and cybersecurity in particular – not to mention the specificities of BRICS countries – this work aims at laying the foundation on which further research on cybersecurity and digital policies in the BRICS can and will be developed. This book explores five essential dimensions of cybersecurity in the BRICS: data protection; consumer protection; cybercrime; protection of public order; and cyberdefence.
Early praises for CyberBRICS: Cybersecurity Regulations in the BRICS Countries:
“The first and biggest challenge facing cybersecurity is raising awareness. This study connects directly with this gap. “CyberBRICS: Cybersecurity Regulations in the BRICS Countries” is a turning point and a great legacy as a way of what the BRICS must follow in this increasingly interconnected world.”Sergio Gusmão Suchodolski, President of the Development Bank of Minas Gerais. Former Director General, Strategy and Partnerships at the BRICS-led New Development Bank
“An important activity of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) is to buildconfi dence and security in the use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs). This book is an extremely relevant work, off ering incredibly valuable materialfor policymakers and other stakeholders alike.”Bruno Ramos, Director for the AmericasRegional Office of the International Telecommunication Union
“This is an important and necessary study. It provides a unique opportunity to do a comparative law and policy review of the global data protection, cybersecurity and cyber-crime legislation in BRICS countries as well as explore new legal concepts. “Sizwe Snail ka Mtuze, Commissioner at the Information Regulator of South Africa
“BRICS countries are quietly shaping parallel institutions providing new infrastructure investment, regulating trade, facilitating international payments, and carrying out (cyber) security and diplomatic dialogues. This book is a must-read for anyone seeking to understand cybersecurity in the Post-western World.”Oliver Stuenkel, Professor of InternationalRelations at Fundação Getulio Vargas (FGV), São Paulo. Author of “Post-Western World”
