In addition, the memorandum lays down grounds for creating a positive environment for the implementation of European Union standards in the field of cybersecurity, as well as new educational programs.
Also, to boost the level of protection of defense companies’ information systems, the parties are planning to set up a Security Operations Center), set to be equipped, including with a SIEM (Security Information and Event Management) system, within a grant Ukroboronprom had won earlier.
"We believe that close cooperation with the State Special Service is the key to success. By signing the memorandum, we’d like to start a stable daily interaction on how to build up a cyber defense industry, given the strategic challenges we’re facing," said Roman Bondar, Deputy Director General of Ukroboronprom.
According to Ukrinform, the Ministry of Community and Territorial Development, Ukroboronprom, and the Cherkasy Regional State Administration earlier signed a memorandum of cooperation and mutual understanding to facilitate the launch in 2022 of the local Center for Creative Economy Development.
