Cybersecurity: Technological Issues and Legal Implications

In July, the chapter, in cooperation with the Portuguese Naval Academy, the Faculty of Law of the University of Lisbon (FDUL) and Instituto Superior Tecnico (IST), organized a seminar on "Cybersecurity: Technological Issues and Legal Implications." The event attracted about 150 attendees, including members of the armed and security forces, government organizations, academia and research centers, and industry. The seminar focused on the relevant issues related to the security of information and the law in cyberspace, with the intention of creating an effective dialogue between the various actors: users, technicians and jurists. Jose Torres Sobral, National Security Authority, delivered the keynote address, presenting the National Cyber Security Strategy and the status of the development of the newly created National Cyber Security Center in Portugal. The first panel, Cybersecurity and its Impact on Organizations, focused on cybersecurity as a critical infrastructure with speakers Manuel Honorato, director of the Management Center for Government Computer Network; Rear Adm. Gameiro Marques, Portuguese Ministry of Defense; and Antonio Costa e Silva, Ph.D., PARTEX Oil & Gas Portugal. Panel two featured presentations from three defense and security-related companies, who shared their strategic viewpoints: Nuno Guerreiro, Edisoft–A Thales Group Company, on the competitive advantage of cybersecurity; Sharon Uziel, Oracle, on Oracle’s cyber and big data intelligence solution; and Pedro Barbosa, AnubisNetworks, on threat intelligence and understanding threats from cyberspace. Panel three, Cybersecurity: Proceedings and Technology, centered around the role of information security management, presented by Cdr. Ribeiro Correia, Portuguese Naval Academy; and system and cryptographic technology, presented by professors Carlos Ribeiro and Ricardo Chaves, IST. Panel four focused on the legal framework of cybersecurity with presentations from Alexandre Pinheiro, FDUL, on fundamental rights and citizenship; Raquel Castro, FDUL, on media information and freedom of press; and Joel Pereira, Superior Council of Magistracy, on cybersecurity and protection of personal data. The event emphasized the importance of a joint action between government authorities and private agents to face current challenges, and pointed to the need for a regulatory body, on a global scale, to develop a concerted strategy for mitigating cybersecurity risks and application of international law related to cybercrime.
