Ukraine to join NATO cyber defence centre as a contributing participant

Ukraine will join the NATO Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence (CCDCOE) as a contributing participant (a non-Nato member), after a unanimous vote by NATO member states, confirmed the CCDCOE in a statement. Experts believe this might aid Ukraine in fighting off cyberthreats against the country.

According to Col. Jaak Tarien, director of the CCDCOE, Ukraine’s participation will be mutually beneficial. Ukraine’s experience would give firsthand information about a varied spectrum of cyberthreats for use in research, exercises, and training.
