Bulgaria Joins NATO Cybersecurity Initiative

The government's press centre released information that the government has approved the Ministry of Defense to join two NATO memorandums, signed in 2008, for the organization, creation, and functionality of the NATO Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence. 

The Centre is in Tallinn, Estonia and currently has 18 member states, while another 4 - Bulgaria, Romania, Norway, and Switzerland are in the talks for joining the Centre. The main task of the Centre is to better the capacity, the cooperation and the exchange of information between NATO, member-states, and partner-states in the cybersecurity sector. This is supposed to happen through education, scientific activities, analyses, and consultations.

This initiative will help Bulgaria get better at cybersecurity. Bulgarian experts in the sector will be able to receive further training, to attend special conferences and initiatives organized by the Centre on a yearly basis.
