Moldova is currently going through a process of transition to an information society and cybersecurity has a significant influence on its stability. Helping unproportionate quantity of Ukrainian refugees since the beginning of the war has made Moldova the target of cyberattacks and at risk of hybrid attacks. As a result, the EU has provided support in cyber resilience in Moldova. EU’s European Peace Facility (EPF) was established to enable capacity building of military actors, and to provide training, equipment, and infrastructure for security purposes. The cyber defence component of the current EPF assistance measure in Moldova will increase the ability of the Moldovan Armed Forces to detect intrusion to the information systems and to counter cyber-attacks.
The project covers the following main activities to achieve the goals:
- Cyber defence training and exercises
- Preparation for and delivery of cybersecurity equipment
