Anniversary Conference of the State Service

of Special Communications and Information Protection of Ukraine:

Cyber Security Law of Ukraine is in the focus of practical results


20th Anniversary International Scientific and Practical Conference "Information Security in Information and Telecommunication Systems" which was organized by the State Service of Special Communications and Information Protection of Ukraine (the CIP) and held from 22 to 24 May 2018.

Deputies of the Verkhovna Rada, ministers, representatives of the Presidential Executive Office and the Government of Ukraine, as well as other high-ranking guests took part in the High-Level events. In general, the Conference was attended by over 250 participants – delegates from state agencies, leading research institutions, enterprises and organizations, experts and IT specialists, entrepreneurs, executives and business representatives.

Personal greetings on the occasion of holding the forum were received from the President of Ukraine, the Secretary of the National Security and Defence Council of Ukraine, the Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine and the Prime Minister of Ukraine.

The pressing issues of this year's conference were the questions of implementation of the Law of Ukraine “On Basic Principles of Ensuring the Cyber Security of Ukraine” and optimization of the national cyber security system.

"Today the cybersecurity system of national information resources is actively developing. A national cyber defence circuit was created, a Cyber Threat Response Centre was launched, a fundamental modernization of the secure Internet access system was performed," said Leonid Yevdochenko, the Chairman of the CIP. He emphasized that implementation of these decisions by the CIP has been made possible by the available high domestic scientific and technical capacity.

In the view of the Chairman of the CIP, foreground job for the State is scaling up of the cyber defence system in all regions of Ukraine and integration of IT systems of critical infrastructure to this cyber defence system, in the first instance energy, health, financial and transport sectors. This task is impossible without an effective public private partnership.

The subjects in question became the key issues for discussion by the participants of the round table held under aegis of the Chairman of the CIP, the Verkhovna Rada Committee for Informatization and Communications, the National Cybersecurity Coordination Centre under the National Security and Defence Council of Ukraine.

A special event at the Conference was the live transmission from the Comprehensive Training of Communication Systems of Ukraine.

As Leonid Yevdochenko noted, comprehensive trainings of such scale and complexity have been carrying out in Ukraine for the first time since independence. The National Communication Network Management Centre of Ukraine and the relevant experimental plot are established by the CIP. Simulations of military, cybersecurity and technogenetic crises are being carried out at a higher strategic level; cyber-training drill exercises are being conducted to defend the core of the National communication Network Management Centre as well as to protect strategic and critical communications.

Leonid Yevdochenko expressed his conviction that the Comprehensive Training of Communication Systems of Ukraine, involving state telecommunication resources along with resources of the main operators of Ukraine, is a realistic example of public-private cooperation in resolving national security issues.

The decision and video material of the Conference are being prepared for publication on the website of the State Service of Special Communications and Information Protection of Ukraine.
