The gained combat experience puts our state on a par with the world's leading countries in the field of cyber security. The process of creating cyber troops, which should become a powerful component of the defense forces of our country in the future, continues. We once again showed that Ukrainian cyber specialists are among the best in the world, and we should use our experience gained during the first cyber war to strengthen defense capabilities, to improve practice and training," Serhiy Demediuk said.
He also noted that in such difficult times for the state, teachers, students, and practitioners need to make maximum efforts so that more and more Ukrainians want to acquire such important and interesting professions related to cyberspace.
