Kiev aims to bring national legislation in line with European one
Ukrainian Cyber Police, together with other executive bodies, is working with committees of the Verkhovna Rada to bring national legislation in line with European one. Especially, because according the Kiev cyber security experts, “the experience of countries that have fully implemented the Budapest Convention shows that such mechanisms significantly accelerate and increase the effectiveness of the police in countering and identifying persons committing crimes, including in cyberspace.” The country is periodically targeted by cybercrime and cyber espionage/warfare operations, often linked to hostile nations. The cooperation with EU could increase protection and resilience of critical infrastructures, and help Kiev to counter the threats.
