Conspicuously not wearing a protective mask, nor keeping the recommended 1.5-meter distance from his colleagues, his first act on this premature return was low-profile but consequential.
Reference to Brazil's Federal Register reveals that the retired general almost immediately signed an ordinance defining the terms of the cybersecurity requirements for the adoption of fifth-generation (5G) wireless communication networks . . .
