Cybercrime is gaining popularity across borders as it has become more sophisticated, border-less nature and with tremendous destructive power. Cybercrime Law is among those key elements to fight cybercrimes in any Country, Yet the law itself is not enough. It must be accompanied by effective cybersecurity awareness programs, Capacity building (Enhancing knowledge to those dealing with cybercrimes) and collaborations (Internally and externally – Across borders).

Brazil like many other countries become among those with cybercrimes law in place. As of many countries, Pressure to amend its cyberlaw rise for the past few months.  After much pressure from Internet rights advocates, proponents of new cybercrime legislation in Brazil removed some of the most controversial elements of the bill on April 11. Critics of the draft amendments also managed to secure a postponing of the preliminary vote to the end of the month.

NEWS UPDATES: Online messaging service, WhatsApp is now fully encrypted on all platforms. The end-to-end encryption means that WhatsApp cannot access the contents of communications, and would therefore be unable to comply with court orders demanding access to that information.

The amendments form an integral part of a report from the parliamentary Inquiry Commission on Cybercrimes (CPI dos Crimes Cibern├ęticos), released on March 31, that would modify key aspects of Marco Civil, Brazil's globally celebrated ‘bill of rights’ for the Internet.
