The Global Cyber Security Capacity Centre (GCSCC), the United Kingdom, the Foreign, the Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO), and the Departamento de Ci√™ncia e Tecnologia, partner, are undertaking a review of Brazil’s cybersecurity capacity maturity levels.



The aim of this activity is to carry out a Cybersecurity Capacity Maturity Model (CMM) to provide a review of Brazil’s current cyber capacity infrastructure. This assessment aims to give stakeholders a better understanding of national and critical infrastructure cybersecurity capacities while being able to prioritise investment and make strategic decisions based on the awareness of strengths and weaknesses.


The GCSCC previously undertook a review of Brazil from 2018 to 2020 in partnership with the Organization of American States (OAS). This project, however, is being undertaken in 2023 which enhances the applicability and relevance of the findings in the context of future Brazilian cyber capacity building.


The assessment contributes towards achieving cybersecurity resilience not only through gaining a more profound understanding of international cybersecurity capacity but also by increasing effective investment into cybersecurity capacity based on a rigorous analysis of data collected through the model implementation. Through the application of the CMM, critical gaps in all areas of national cybersecurity are identified and filled with scalable and effective measures, in cooperation with international partners.
