CISA and Ukrainian state cyber group bolster partnership against Russia

Ukraine’s state cybersecurity agency has expanded its partnership with the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency to continuously combat the threat from Russia.

According to the cyber agency, the agencies will begin joint training exercises and enhance how they exchange technical information.

The Ukrainian group called the collaboration an ‘important step towards the integration of Ukrainian cyber defenders into the global expert environment’ and noted that the US and Ukraine are two countries ‘upon which the greatest number of cyberattacks have been waged’.

The agreement between CISA and SSSCIP will ‘augment real-time information sharing across agencies and critical sectors’ according to Oleksandr Potii, who is the deputy chairman of the SSSCIP.

Under the agreement, the two cybersecurity agencies will ensure Ukrainians have more access to methodology and practices related to US critical infrastructure security, enhance joint reporting of cyber threat indicators and incidents, establish formal information exchange channels to bolster incident response and recovery and beef up joint training exercises.
