Congress of Peru proposes regulation in Cyberdefense

The project would regulate military operations in cyberspace under the Ministry of Defense.

Last week APRA congressman Jorge del Castillo presented a bill that seeks to establish the regulatory framework on cyber defense of the Peruvian State.

In this way, it would seek to detect, prevent and respond to threats made in and through cyberspace that could affect the digital information systems of the Ministry of Defense from attacks through cyberspace that threaten the security of the nation.

The Armed Forces that are constituted by the Army, the Navy and the Air Force and the Joint Command of the Armed Forces are the executing agencies of the Ministry of Defense that would be in charge of the military operations that would regulate the project.

According to the project, the exercise of the right to self-defense in the context of cyber defense operations would be subject to the principles of legality, necessity and opportunity.
