Ukraine for the first time received two important awards in the field of cybersecurity Cybersec Europe 2022 Award: for the heroic resistance to the Russian aggression and protecting digital boundaries of the democratic world.
- The ceremony took place today at one of the biggest events on cybersecurity in Europe, “СYBERSEC European Cybersecurity Forum”.
- Last year Russia constantly attacked Ukraine in cyberfront – our public resources, websites, banking system and the media. We repelled these cyberattacks and strengthened the cyber resilience of the state, while Ukrainian cyber specialists worked and created valuable products. With the start of a full-scale war, we began not only to defend ourselves, but also united into Ukrainian cyber troops to defend the country.
- Therefore, this award, first, is for the entire cyber community and volunteers who today, together with us, are waging the world’s first cyberwar. While our brave warriors were proving that the so-called “second army of the world” were ordinary marauders and murderers, our IT community disproved the myth of Russia, as the strongest cyber state.
- What is now the world see has no analogues. This new level of experience not only for us but also for other countries. We study it together and intuitively find solutions that help counter this threat.
