In an interview with CNN, lawyer and economist Renato Opice Blum, who is coordinator of the postgraduate courses in Digital Law at FAAP and the Brazilian School of Law (Ebradi), stated that the commercialization of data from the ministers of the Supreme Federal Court (STF) and the President Jair Bolsonaro may be the biggest data leak in the country’s history.
“It seems that this is perhaps the biggest data leakage here in Brazil,” said Blum. “There is even a police investigation underway in the state of São Paulo, but this news that the Federal Police is also going to enter the investigation is positive because it ends up helping and improving the tools,” he added.
The expert pointed out that it is always very difficult to find the source of the data leak, but that the General Data Protection Law, in force since September last year, brings a series of rules and obligations for companies dealing with personal data.
“[A lei] it aims to prevent, when there is a leak, damage or at least the exposure of the people listed in those databases, “said Blum.
