What are the main challenges that Brazil faces to prevent threats in cybersecurity? Who are the key actors shaping this agenda? How can they work together to mitigate existing risks? The search for answers to these questions encouraged the Igarapé Institute to systematize, analyze and gather the existing knowledge on cybersecurity and create a Portal that could facilitate access to knowledge in this emerging area.
The Brazilian Cybersecurity Portal gathers analyses, research papers, norms, recommendations and other documents on the topic. It aims to enhance the potential for collective action of civil society, the academic community, public authorities and the private sector to build a more secure, cooperative, resilient and sustainable digital environment.
The Igarapé Institute is an independent think and do tank focused on public, digital and climate security areas and its consequences for democracy. Its objective is to propose solutions and partnerships for facing global challenges through research, new technologies, communication and advocacy on public policies The Institute works with governments, the private sector and civil society to design data-based solutions. We received an award as the best Human Rights NGO in 2018 and the best think tank on social policy by Prospect Magazine in 2019.
