Norway donated 1.2 million euros in cyber security equipment to Serbia, News
As part of the “Norway for you – Serbia” project, the Kingdom of Norway donated a platform to Serbia that serves to practice defense against cyber attacks, the United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS) announced. The aid is worth 1.2 million euros, and should have improved the regulatory and strategic framework in the area.
“The platform that serves to hold cyber exercises at the national level enables the real situation of different attack scenarios, and will contribute to capacity building and training of officials in various state institutions,” said State Secretary of the Ministry of Trade, Tourism and Telecommunications Milos Cvetanovic.
The procurement of a platform for cyber exercises enabled the training and further training of members of the teams of the centers for prevention of security risks of state institutions.
Training participants go through different scenarios of possible cyber attacks, which is the most important exercise for strengthening information security.
“In the 21st century, endangering vital national IT systems can lead to serious political and socio-economic consequences, so prevention and training in the field of cyber security is extremely important. That is why we support the Government of Serbia and its institutions to build capacity and strengthen cyber resilience threats,” said the Ambassador of the Kingdom of Norway, Jorn Eugen Jelsta.
The platform enables the organization of the first national cyber exercise already in 2021, which will target representatives of key state institutions dealing with information security, such as the National Center for Prevention of Security Risks in ICT Systems of Serbia (National CERT) and the Republic Agency for Electronic Communications and Postal Services (RATEL).
“Thanks to the support of the Kingdom of Norway, Ratel received a platform for simulating cyber attacks of the latest generation CyberBit, which is an exceptional concept with a large number of possible scenarios involving different vectors of cyber attacks,” said RATEL director Dragan Pejovic, Nova Ekonomija reports.
