Ukraine – US: new stage in the sphere of cyber security

The Ministry of Defence and the State Service of Special Communication and Information Protection took part in the US cyber exercises «Cyber Flag 2021» for the first time.

iDemocracy informs so with the reference to the Presidential Office of Ukraine.

«Experts in Ukraine's cyber security and defense sectors are taking part in the event of such a level for the first time in history, which is also one of the steps towards Ukraine's accession to the international community within the Cyber Flag»,
– the message reads.

The exercises were held during 18-19 November 2021 on the online platform «Persistent Cyber Training Environment» that is under the control of the US Army. The goal of the exercises is to improve capabilities to detect, synchronize and jointly respond to malicious actions in cyberspace aimed at facilities of critical infrastructure.

Let us recall that the exercises Cyber Flag have been held by the US Department of Defense with the involvement of Great Britain, Denmark, Estonia, and France since 2011. Participation in the exercises will help Ukraine to become a part of the system of collective security in cyberspace.

Team iDemocracy has previously written that Ukraine and the US are the countries that are bombarded by cyber attacks the most.
