The goal of this special issue is to showcase cutting-edge security and privacy research being conducted by the Brazilian community, with topics unique to Brazil. Brazil’s cybersecurity capabilities are growing, and a recent joint program between the US’s National Science Foundation (NSF) and Brazil’s Ministry of Science, Technology, Innovation and Communication (MCTI) program has increased focus on opportunities for international collaboration (

Examples of issues that are unique to Brazil include: relationships of privacy laws, perceptions, and preferences in Brazil versus other countries; case studies of cybersecurity in Brazilian networks and critical infrastructure; legal aspects of cybersecurity in Brazil; similarities and differences in cybersecurity innovation characteristics in Brazil versus other countries; cyberattacks specific to Brazil (for instance, Boletos); and security and privacy problems that are of particular national importance or unique expertise that is specific to Brazil’s culture, education system, location, history, and so on.
