Ukraine tightens collaboration with EU cybersecurity agencies

Representatives from the European Union Agency for Cybersecurity (ENISA) and the State Service of Special Communications and Information Protection of Ukraine (SSSCIP) met to explore the enhancement of networking and collaboration.

The working meeting took place as part of the Cybersecurity East Project trip to the ENISA headquarters in Athens.

After the conference, Viktor Zhora, the deputy head of the SSSCIP, stated: ‘Cooperation with the European partners includes two key vectors for our country. On the one hand, Ukrainian experience in cyberwar, confronting cyberthreats from Russia would definitely be beneficial for other democracies.’

The SSSCIP claimed that the meeting was essential for European integration as well, with ENISA special partner status being a key step in that direction since the Ukrainian conflict has pushed the country even further toward its Western peers.

According to SSSCIP, achieving this accreditation is crucial for the process of aligning national cybersecurity laws with EU law.
