CISA and Ukraine SSSCIP Sign Agreement to Deepen Cybersecurity Operational Collaboration

The MOC expands upon CISA’s existing relationship with the Government of Ukraine in information exchanges and sharing of best practices on cyber incidents.

The U.S. Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) and the Ukrainian State Service of Special Communications and Information Protection of Ukraine (SSSCIP) signed a Memorandum of Cooperation (MOC) this week to strengthen collaboration on shared cybersecurity priorities.

The MOC expands upon CISA’s existing relationship with the Government of Ukraine in the areas of:

  • Information exchanges and sharing of best practices on cyber incidents;
  • Critical infrastructure security technical exchanges; and
  • Cybersecurity training and joint exercises.

“I am incredibly pleased to sign this MOC to deepen our cybersecurity collaboration with our Ukrainian partners,” said CISA Director Jen Easterly. “I applaud Ukraine’s heroic efforts to defend its nation against unprecedented Russian cyber aggression and have been incredibly moved by the resiliency and bravery of the Ukrainian people throughout this unprovoked war. Cyber threats cross borders and oceans, and so we look forward to building on our existing relationship with SSSCIP to share information and collectively build global resilience against cyber threats.”

“This memorandum of cooperation represents an enduring partnership and alignment in defending our shared values through increased real-time information sharing across agencies and critical sectors and committed collaboration in cultivating a resilient partnership,” said Mr. Oleksandr Potii, Deputy Chairman, SSSCIP.
