In an interview with CNN, the lawyer specializing in Digital Law, Luiza Leite, said that this undue access to the technological environments of these entities, and the inability to deal with these incidents and with the protection of citizens’ data, demonstrate a deficiency in the government’s information security mechanisms.

“We need the government to establish procedures for greater security within these sites. In addition to the platforms where we have a very large collection of personal data from citizens, especially during the Covid-19 pandemic”, he said.
