Origin and analysis of Brazilian cybernetic fragility





The former National Security Agency agent Edward Snowden uncovered evidence of US cyber espionage. Thus this study examines the geostrategy of such cyber threats. The methodology adopted entailed a qualitative approach. This way, we are able to understand that a spread of US ICT during the 20th and 21st centuries has created a global dependence on American technologies. Brazil’s failure to sufficiently develop its ICT sector could have led it to being vulnerable to cyberattacks. However, one cannot be certain that such a factor was behind the NSA surveillance issue, as evidence does not imply a causal relation.
