Cyber hygiene initiative: Strengthening state security through education

The training program "Fundamentals of Cyber Hygiene for Employees of the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine and the National Police of Ukraine," supported by the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine and EUAM Ukraine, has successfully concluded. The project was executed in collaboration with the International Cyber Academy and the ISSP Training Center.

Close to 2000 personnel from the National Police of Ukraine and the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine actively participated in the program. Training sessions and assessments were conducted through a specialized interactive platform.

Designated coordinators from both the National Police of Ukraine and the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine oversaw the educational process and monitored outcomes closely.

"We are highly satisfied with the outcomes of this initiative. The training has significantly bolstered the cyber resilience of the National Police and the State Border Guard Service, enhancing their cyber competencies in managing departmental information resources. The endeavor to fortify cyber resilience in Ukraine, particularly within the public sector, should be viewed as an investment in European and international digital security," remarked Valeri Tsiupa, president of the International Cyber Academy.

In essence, cyber hygiene and digital security should be ingrained as integral facets of organizational culture, serving as vital shields for state resources, especially during times of conflict. Such initiatives need to be sustained and expanded, emphasizing the pivotal role of the "human factor" within the cybersecurity framework of "technology-processes-people."
