The Ukrainian National Center for Cybersecurity Coordination and energy security developer IP3 are collaborating under the Collective Defense AI Fusion Center, a unified platform for Ukraine and its allies to ward off cyberattacks, particularly on energy installations.
Supported by the Ukraine Energy Security Fund, CDAIC is an offshoot of President Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s decree No. 695 issued on Oct. 17 implementing the National Security and Defense Council’s decision to ensure that critical energy infrastructures are safe and protected during hostile conditions.
For CDAIC, IP3 will tap the IronRadar early warning system from the collective defense platform IronNet to enable intelligence threat sharing at machine speed.
Oleksiy Danilov, NSDC chairman, said that with IP3 and IronNet, Ukraine is creating the “widest possible alliance of partners” capable of a stronger and faster response against cyberattacks.
In addition, the CDAIC program will collaborate with the seven-country IT Coalition created in September under the Ramstein Framework.
A cyber range will be included in the program’s activities to provide cybersecurity firms from Ukraine’s allies the opportunity to train their personnel under real cyberwar conditions in the country.
