Cybersecurity is a term with a variety of meanings, a term that at this point has received little attention as a concept in academia, although it is used by countless organisations and individuals of different professional backgrounds. Observing debates on cybersecurity in diverging academic environments, it becomes clear that increasing understanding and acceptance of multidisciplinarity would improve the debates as they are taking place so far. This chapter is a reflection on an initial but not fully debated attempt to create subcategories for cybersecurity from a legal perspective in which the concept itself serves as the main category subdivided into data protection, consumer protection, cybercrime, public order and cyberdefence, all with a focus on Brazil as a national case.
