The National Cyber Security Centre under the National Security and Defence Council (NSDC) completed the development of the Cyber Security Strategy of Ukraine.
“We expect that this project will be submitted to the National Security and Defence Council of Ukraine for consideration in the near future… The document is freely available and the full text is published on the website of the NSDC,” Natalia Tkachuk, Head of the Information Security and Cyber Security Service of the NSDC, said at the forum “Ukraine 30.”
NSDC Secretary Oleksiy Danilov announced the beginning of the development of the Cyber Security Strategy back in September 2020. According to him, this document will significantly strengthen the defence component of the country’s cyberspace.
Meanwhile, the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) reported an increase in cyberattacks during the build-up of Russian troops on the border with Ukraine.
According to Illia Vitiuk, the head of SBU’s Cyber Security Department, the SBU has prevented more than 600 cyberattacks and cyber incidents in 2021. As he noted, these figures say little as even one cyberattack can cause irreparable damage.
The SBU representative said that strengthening the system of counteraction to cyber threats could be definitely regarded as the key requirement now in Ukraine.
