On 2 December, a cyber laboratory established under the European Peace Facility was opened in Kyiv, Ukraine, to ensure the security of the Ukrainian armed forces. The EU has financed and delivered equipment, software and hardware.
With this support, Ukraine will be able to build and further develop the cyber defence capabilities of its armed forces to detect intrusions into information systems, combat cyber attacks and enhance overall cyber security capabilities.
This cyber lab will provide a training environment to test and strengthen the practical skills of military cyber defence specialists through realistic virtual scenarios and real-time simulations that will help identify, monitor and defend against future cyber attacks faster and more effectively.
The €31 million assistance measure that established the laboratory was adopted on 15 December 2021 as part of the European Peace Fund.
