8th December 2020 - 15:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team

CDCAER will plan and implement cyber defence and attack activities for the Brazilian Air Force

The Brazilian Air Force (FAB) is setting up a specialist cyber unit, following a study carried out by the Aeronautical Staff.

The Aeronautical Cyber Defense Centre (CDCAER) is tasked with planning, executing, controlling and supervising cyber defence and cyber attack activities.

CDCAER is being set up in two phases: the initial capability will go live in June 2022, followed by a full-scale centre to become operational in December 2023, reporting to FAB Aeronautical Command.

Sub-Chief of Staff of the Air Force, Maj Brig João Campos Ferreira Filho, said: ‘We need a Center that brings together all the activities of cyber defence, protection, attack and cyber exploration, so that it is the central organ of the cyber defence system of our force.’
