Cybersecurity, Data Protection and the Digital Future of the BRICS

Voiced by Amazon Polly

Friday 30 August, at FGV we will host the CyberBRICS Seminar “5G and New Digital Infrastructures in the BRICS

The event will start at 14:00 (GMT-3) and live streaming will be available using this link https://www.youtube.com/fgv/live

The debate is particularly relevant in light of the recent Joint Declaration of the BRICS Ministers for ICTs, calling for “increased participation of business, academia and other relevant stakeholders for ICT development among BRICS countries [on] rural connectivity and IoT solutions for agriculture in BRICS countries, 5G in BRICS countries, expansion of broadband internet access in BRICS countries, and digital transformation strategy in BRICS countries”.

The event will gather an ample range of stakeholders to discuss with members of the CyberBRICS project the most recent policy and technology advancements, regarding the expansion of digital infrastructures, the introduction of 5G technology and the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead for BRICS countries.

The agenda of the event is below and available at this link https://cyberbrics.info/event-5g-and-new-digital-infrastructures-in-the-brics/ 

Lastly, please note that video recordings of previous CyberBRICS events, including our June seminar on Cybersecurity, Data Protection and the Digital Future of the BRICS, are available here https://cyberbrics.info/category/events/
