Discussions about cybersecurity concerns in critical infrastructure quite often have an alarmist approach. Threats may employ cyberspace for actions that generate kinetic and non-kinetic effects on national defense.
In this context, we will outline how the Cyber Guardian Exercise coordinated by the Cyber Defense Command to establish cyber protections around important national and critical infrastructure sectors in Brazil. This was done by building a strong cybersecurity community based on the exchange of experiences and partnerships among 38 government and military agencies, defense-related firms, academic entities, and representatives from the financial, energy, telecommunications and other critical sectors.
The need for rapid information sharing to cope with the dynamism and uncertainties of cyber threats, as well as identify subsidies important to the National Network Incident Treatment Plan.
The importance of a permanent exchange of experiences relating to best practices and mutual knowledge that make up the cyberspace.
The importance of the National Cybersecurity Strategy for the integration of initiatives, normative alignment and maturity of society on the cybersecurity efforts.
