Natalia Tkachuk: To improve our national cybersecurity system, we also need to study and implement NATO and EU standards and policies
On November 23-24, 2023, a two-day workshop for representatives of the main cybersecurity actors in Ukraine was held on the topic: «Achieving cyber security and resilience posture by improved inter agency cooperation». The event was organized by the European Union Advisory Mission and the Euro-Atlantic Resilience Center (E-ARC) with the support of the National Cybersecurity Coordination Center at the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine.
During the workshop, relevant public sector experts learned about the most important security and cyber resilience norms at the European and Euro-Atlantic levels. They discussed the mechanisms by which relevant legal norms and technical solutions can be transferred to the Ukrainian context to ensure Ukraine's cyber resilience.
«Ukraine continues to fight the enemy not only for our independence and territorial integrity, but also for the main values of the whole democratic world. We have gained unique experience in countering Russia in cyberspace. But to improve our national cybersecurity system, we also need to study and implement NATO and EU standards and policies. The exchange of experience is extremely important, and I am confident that new knowledge and information will contribute to improving the level of cybersecurity at the national and international level,» – said Natalia Tkachuk, Head of the Information and Cybersecurity Service of the National Security and Defense Council, Secretary of the NCSCC, opening the event.
Natalia Tkachuk also thanked the European Union Advisory Mission and Romanian partners for supporting Ukraine during the war, in particular, in building our country's cybersecurity capabilities.
The workshop increased the understanding of the mechanisms of interagency cooperation at the national and international levels used to ensure cyber resilience. After completing the theoretical part of the training, the participants had the opportunity to practice their skills.
