Seminar CyberBRICS: Cybersecurity, data protection and the digital future of the BRICS

On June 4, 2019 we held the event “CyberBRICS: Cybersecurity, Data Protection and The Digital Future of The BRICS”. The event sought to promote responses to the challenges related to personal data regulation and cybersecurity governance by providing valuable insights into BRICS digital policies that can be used by researchers, regulators and companies.

It was possible to have a broad view of the current legislative scenario of the countries and the speakers were able to critically analyze the development of digital policies of their respective regions. “The discussions were fruitful and it was possible to strengthen relationships with members of various sectors of government and academia, which could result in future partnerships and contributions over the coming years under the CyberBRICS project. In addition, the feedback from the audience and the speakers was very positive”, said CyberBRICS coordinator Luca Belli.

Among the main topics of the event, it can be highlighted the new laws recently adopted by the BRICS in the digital field, the US-China conflict materialized in the ban of Huawei by the US government and the measures and positions of the Brazilian agencies in relation to the BRICS countries.
