‘There are similar units in many countries; they are affiliated with various divisions. In Lithuania, for one, they report to the Defense Ministry. They are responsible for cyber security of this particular authority and develop recommendations for other governmental authorities. There is a certain system, and it’s up to the leaders of the state, particularly, the National Security and Defense Council, to decide whether it will be under the aegis of the Ministry,’ the official said.
He added that ‘there already is a network and the software, and the rest that’s necessary to protect Ukraine from cyber attacks'.
‘A NATO counselor assists us to create such unit at the Defense Ministry; currently, cyber protection is within the SBU’s authority. But we’re going to make it within our authority, either,’ the Minister concluded.
