Oleksandr Atamanenko and Liga.Tech answer the question of who deals with cybersecurity in Ukraine
“In recent years, Ukraine has become a testing ground for various cyberattack scenarios. The most famous of them include the Petya virus, attacks on the energy system, CEC, etc.
As practice has shown, the level of cybersecurity in Ukraine is very low. Our country ranks 54th in the Global Cybersecurity Index ranking. Despite this, the cybersecurity system exists in Ukraine, and it includes:
– Academic cybersecurity (higher education institutions, research institutes, etc.);
– National cybersecurity (legislative framework, State Service for Special Communication and Information Protection of Ukraine (CERT-UA), cyberpolice, Security Service of Ukraine, Ministry of Defence, Intelligence bodies, National Bank of Ukraine);
– Commercial cybersecurity (software and hardware solutions, methods, experience, technologies, etc.).
– Non-profit volunteer and public organisations (InformNapalm, Ukrainian Cyber Alliance, etc.)”.
