Ukraine creates its energy infrastructures cybersecurity center. The NSDC: The objective is to counter at the best the potential intensification of Russia’s hybrid cyber warfare aggression with the beginning of a new heating season

Ukraine will create a dedicated cybersecurity center to protect its energy critical infrastructures against Russian cyber warfare attacks. It has been announced by the National Security and Defense Council (NSDC) of the country. According the NSDC Secretary, Oleskiy Danilov, this issue is extremely urgent, given the potential intensification of Russia’s hybrid aggression with the beginning of a new heating season in Ukraine. “We are at war with the Russian Federation, cyberattacks against our critical energy infrastructure are one of its methods”, – he said adding that measures to ensure the cybersecurity of the domestic fuel and energy complex are also relevant in the context of Ukraine’s plan to join the European energy network. Furthermore, during the NSDC, the participants also discussed the creation of cyber troops in Ukraine and the need to develop a relevant draft law in the near future.
