Cybersecurity is debated at BRICS Think Tank Symposium, in China

Luca Belli, senior researcher from the Center for Technology and Society (CTS) of FGV’s Rio de Janeiro Law School (Direito Rio), participated in the BRICS Think Tank Symposium held in Chongqing, China. The expert gave a presentation on cyber economy and cybersecurity.

Specialized in Internet regulation and governance, Belli presented a paper on “Legal Interoperability in BRICS,” pointing out the need for compatible regulatory frameworks that define shared levels of obligations for corporations and protection for individuals in BRICS countries.

“BRICS countries will only be able to truly tap into the potential of e-commerce and strengthen cybersecurity by establishing a coherent strategy and compatible regulatory frameworks. The recent cyberattacks clearly explain the urgency of implementing efficient and compatible mechanisms to ensure cybersecurity and protect personal data across all BRICS countries. These measures are paramount to increase user confidence in e-commerce and promote innovative services,” said Belli.

The symposium was organized in a joint effort between the China Council on BRICS Think Tank Cooperation and Sichuan International Studies University. Chongqing is the largest and most populous Chinese province, besides one of the country’s main economic and technological hubs. During the event, Belli was invited to prepare the next report on cyber economy and cybersecurity of the BRICS, promoted by the Southwest University of Chongqing.
