Chief Justice of the Brazilian Federal Supreme Court visits technology center in Israel

The head of the Brazilian Federal Supreme Court (STF) and the National Council of Justice (CNJ), Chief Justice Dias Toffoli, visited the CyberSpark CERT in Beersheva, Israel, 108 kilometers from Tel Aviv on Tuesday. The unit is one of the most important structures in the Israeli state dedicated to cybersecurity. In the morning, still in Tel Aviv, Justice Dias Toffoli also met, at the Brazilian embassy, with the director of the Israel National Cyber Directorate, Amit Ashkenazi, who is responsible for drafting the legal framework on the issue in the country.

The meetings ended the first two days of the official visit to Israel, at the invitation of the Israeli government, focusing on the technological issues of justice and citizenship. On Monday (17), the Chief Justice of the STF visited a company that develops innovative solutions in the areas of defense, artificial intelligence and cyber security in Haifa region (100 kilometers from Tel Aviv).

"Israel is a highly developed country in areas such as database security, which is fundamental, for example, in the effort to computerize judicial processes, already very advanced in Brazil. The quality of the innovation that we see here and the normative framework under development offer many answers to the challenges to the defense of the State and the citizen that are currently faced in the world. Brazil has a wide scope of cooperation with Israel on these issues", said Justice Dias Toffoli.

At the invitation of the Israeli Confederation of Brazil (Conib), the Chief Justice of the Brazilian Supreme Court also participated in talks with the retired judges of the Israeli Supreme Court, Salim Jubran, the first Arab citizen to hold the position, and Aharon Barak, a professor at the Interdisciplinary Center in Herzliya .
