National Cybersecurity Cluster, founded in February 2021, became the first coordination initiative in the field of cyber security in Ukraine. During this time, the platform significantly contributed to strengthening the national cyber security system. With the start of active hostilities, the initiative became even more relevant. It helped focus attention on the urgent issues of cyber security in the war conditions at both national and regional levels. At the same time, the cyber community of Ukraine faces new challenges every day. Therefore, the Cluster continues to ensure effective coordination of efforts to achieve joint success.
The final Cluster’s session in 2022 provided an in-depth exploration of the key achievements, prospects, and ways of improvement based on the results of 9 months of resistance to military aggression. In addition, the session formed a vision for the year 2023. Key cybersecurity actors shared success stories, as well as their needs and plans. The highlight of the meeting was the opportunity to learn firsthand about the results of the most significant cyber security event of 2022 – the National Defense Hackathon.
