National Coordination Center for Cyber Security at the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine

The National Cyber Security Coordination Center is the first working body of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine. The center was established on January 27, 2016. Three years later, by the decree of the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky, changes were made to the activities of the NCCC, which significantly strengthened the capacity of the center – expanded its tasks, functions and staff.

Today, the NCCC is a central player in the national cybersecurity system and coordinates the activities of relevant government agencies. The center is also the first public platform to bring together government and private sector efforts to counter cyber threats.
