The Cyber Security Bureau of the Ministry of Defence of Georgia (MOD) was officially handed over an integrated cyber security solution – both hardware and software – under the EU SAFE programme, in partnership with the UN Office for Project Services (UNOPS).
These critical cyber security solutions aim at enhancing the detection of infected systems, minimising the incidents of unauthorised access and data loss, and thus creating a safer environment in the cyberspace of Georgia’s Defence System.
“Thanks to the EU SAFE project, we equipped our IT infrastructure with state-of-the-art cyber security technologies. Also, the project allowed us to train our technical staff. All the benefits received from the exemplary cooperation with the European Union and UNOPS create a robust cyber security at both the Ministry of Defence and national levels,” said Levan Giorgobiani, Director of Georgia’s Cyber Security Bureau.
The hardware and software, donated by EU, is worth US$231,000.
