Article
Concerns over practices in cyberspace are central to the consolidating international agenda for cybersecurity. Responses to such concerns come in different shapes and sizes, and are proposed by different actors. Whether it concerns intellectual property rights, the theft of trade secrets, collection of personal data, critical infrastructure protect...
Chapter
As the discussions at the UN and other multilateral fora intensify and the probability of States reaching meaningful agreements on cybersecurity appears low, it seems pertinent to reflect on the decision-making processes, and whether they would benefit from including different perspectives, such as the point of view of the technical community. We f...

We take the contestation over Microsoft’s legitimacy as norm-entrepreneur as an entry point to the discussion of how global cybersecurity governance unfolds in practice and how, instead of focusing on either the “public” or “private” aspects of it, cybersecurity governance happens in a grey zone of continuous contestation and negotiations over who...
Article
The intertwinement between innovation, the expansion of digital technologies and insecurity has contributed to the surfacing of concerns related to the development of cyber capacities and capabilities, that is, having the means to respond to cyber insecurity through the mobilisation of technological, human, strategic and economic resources.

A implementação de tecnologias associadas à Internet das Coisas (IoT, da sigla em inglês) é fundamental para o desenvolvimento social e econômico do país, em especial com o uso de Tecnologias da Informação e Comunicação (TICs). No entanto, a IoT também traz uma série de riscos relacionados à segurança, privacidade e proteção de dados. Ao considerar...
Conference Paper
This paper draws on the authors' previous research on corporate entrepreneurship and deepens its discussions about the role of industry in cyber norm promotion. More specifically, it analyses Microsoft's organizational complexity to understand what its engagement with cyber norms has to say about norms promotion and private governance in cyber secu...
Thesis
Full-text available
Severe challenges mark the technical development of IoT, most notably: (i) security concerns deriving from the vulnerability of cheap devices (new vectors for scalable attacks across device- networks) and (ii) interoperability issues in ensuring effective integration across an ecosystem of sensors and devices. IoT platforms respond to such challeng...
Article

The Internet has continuously been drawing the attention of states. Governance became a central aspect to negotiating tensions between state and non-state actors involved in the Internet ecosystem. This paper draws a comparative analysis between China and Brazil – with a particular emphasis on the latter – in the negotiations on global Internet gov...

In fact, they are seen to be the key to the sustainability and ongoing evolution of collaborative, inclusive and multistakeholder approaches to internet policy development and implementation...
Thesis
Full-text available
The challenge of managing complexity (actors and themes) has posed crucial questions as to how this cyberspace "should", "can", "ought" to be organized. With that being so, this thesis argues that there is, what one might call "gap" between the field of Internet governance and cybersecurity, respectively. This work contends that the former has hist...

There is a lack of coherent and balanced approach between law enforcement, security based perspective and a digital rights based perspective (which has been safeguarded by the Marco Civil law) in Brazil. Since the Snowden revelations, a criminal-based, security oriented approach has been strengthened in detriment of the protection of individual and civil rights. Developing in the context of poor stakeholder coordination, this unbalanced scenario undermines the protection of rights in the country, which is the very purpose of the Marco Civil Law, results in violations to people’s privacy, data integrity and even access to information and raises concerns in the context of the 2018 elections in the country. The main goal of the project is to provide meaningful and evidence-based inputs to improve cybersecurity governance in Brazil and the implementation of rights based policies vis à vis emerging technologies. It also aims to foster multistakeholder dialogue on the following pillars: - Data protection and privacy policies - Regulation of emerging technologies (particularly IoT) - Cybersecurity
