NATO will help Ukraine defend itself from russian cyber attacks
During the Madrid summit, NATO pledged to strengthen Ukraine's cyber defense against the background of russia's relentless attacks. The Alliance has updated the Comprehensive package of NATO assistance to Ukraine, European Pravda reports.
In the future, NATO will pay attention to building up Ukraine's capabilities in the field of cyber security, providing the necessary equipment and the training of personnel, which will enable Ukraine to protect its infrastructure from modern cyber attacks.
Joint countering and thwarting the activities of persons who live on the territory of NATO member countries and provide support to russia's hybrid aggression in the cyber sphere should also become an important vector of work.
Ukraine is also expected to join NATO's Joint Advanced Technologies Center for Cyber Defense as a permanent member soon. Ukraine submitted an official request to join the Center on August 4, 2021. Despite Hungary's veto at the beginning of the year, on March 4, 2022, Ukraine's application was unanimously supported by all members of the organization's Steering Committee.
NATO Cooperative Cyber Defense Center of Excellence (NATO CCD COE) is located in Tallinn. It is an accredited research and training center engaged in the training of NATO cyber defense specialists, research, and development in the field of cyber defense.
According to the Cyber Defense Center's statutory documents, countries outside the North Atlantic Alliance can participate in its activities. In general, 25 NATO member states and five partner states (Austria, South Korea, Finland, Sweden, Switzerland) participate in the Center's activities.
Every year, the Cyber Defense Center organizes the world's largest international cyber defense training, Locked Shields.
The Cyber Defense Center provides cyber experts for scenario development and is directly involved in the planning of a number of annual NATO exercises such as Trident Juncture, Trident Jaguar, or Cyber Coalition.
