Since the beginning of the full-scale Russian aggression, EU has rapidly supported the cybersecurity and data security needs of Ukrainian public authorities to keep public services available during the war.
This project protected the databases and networks from cyber threats and secured data confidentiality, integrity and availability for the government information systems and critical infrastructure.
The project focused on three main areas that mainly influence public service provision in Ukraine online and offline:
- support to the secure data exchange platform Trembita and management of government registers, including the identification and neutralisation of possible cyber threats,
- critical infrastructure and government data protection, including replacement of destroyed hardware,
- protection equipment provision enabling operational staff to support and maintain critical government infrastructure.
Support was provided to 18 recipients of the public sector.
As a result, access to public services was granted during the war, cyber resilience and data protection were improved, and critical infrastructure was protected.
