The National Cybersecurity Coordination Center at the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine conducted training on developing a Roadmap for the implementation of the Cybersecurity Strategy of Ukraine.
The purpose of the Roadmap is to form a common vision of the Strategy’s goals and objectives by all stakeholders, a clear correlation between the level of strategic planning and annual plans of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine, ensuring an inclusive process of involving all cybersecurity actors coordinated by the NCSCC in the process of implementing a long-term detailed plan for delivering the Strategy.
Opening the event, Head of the Information Security and Cybersecurity Service of the Staff of NSDC of Ukraine Natalia Tkachuk noticed that “it is important to radically change the approach to strategic planning in the field of cybersecurity, ensuring the inclusion in the annual budget expenditures of the needs of government bodies to meet the objectives of the Plan for the implementation of the Cybersecurity Strategy of Ukraine”, and addressed the participants of the training with a request to timely submit the relevant calculations for their generalization to the State Service for Special Communication and Information Protection of Ukraine.
Speaking about the implementation of the Strategy, Head of the Service for Supporting the NCSCC at the NSDC Staff Serhiy Prokopenko noted that “for the first time, the Strategy focuses not only on the main actors of cybersecurity but also on the tasks of other government agencies, critical infrastructure facilities, and private sector enterprises”. He stressed that without the active participation of all stakeholders, it is impossible to ensure the country’s cybersecurity.
