Cyber-security is undoubtedly a "hot-topic" in Brazil at the moment, even if the efforts to adopt a binding and more harmonized regulatory framework have not been successful so far.

The Brazilian institutional and regulatory framework on cyber-defense is quite dispersed: many different bodies are involved and several texts of "soft law" have been adopted. However, thus far, a binding legal framework on cyber-warfare and cyber-security does not exist. 

The Brazilian framework on cyber-security is still evolving, being characterized by conflicting lines of accountability among the institutions involved, in addition to a certain lack of coordination between them.

This study seeks to set forth a general approach regarding cyber-defense, cyber-security and cyber-warfare in Brazil.
