Brasilia hosts the largest Brazilian cyber defense, communications and electronic warfare event, Brazil Cyber Defense. The public can lecture on the subject, participate in or attend competitions and learn about innovative products in the security sector. The fair is open to the public and has free admission. The event began on Monday (23/4) and continues until this Thursday (26).
Among the speakers is Kevin Mitnick, the world's most famous hacker, best-selling author and the biggest cybersecurity speaker today. The presentation will be similar to a technology magic show that will include a live demonstration of hacking.
There is also much expectation around the panel of Paul de Souza, founder and president of the Cyber Security Forum Initiative. It is a worldwide benchmark in cyber security. Another speaker is Demi Getschko, CEO of the Information and Coordination Center of Ponto BR. The panels also have names of the private initiative and the government.
The country is on the road to innovation. Since 2009, the Brazilian Army is leading a project that includes the construction of a Cyber Defense Center, development of software and hardware solutions, acquisition of supercomputers and digital research materials. The value of the project is about R $ 331 million and is expected to be completed by 2020.
The banking sector is one of those that most applies resources in information technology. According to a study by consulting firm Gartner, only in 2015 this investment was R $ 19 billion, and the percentage of IT security budget reserved for the prevention and detection of vulnerabilities will increase from 10% in 2012 to 60% in 2020.
