Kyiv welcomed an interagency meeting of an expert group on the creation of an effective mechanism for the protection of critical infrastructure facilities, under the chairmanship of the First Vice Prime Minister of Ukraine Stepan Kubiv.
The event was held on the initiative of the SBU, within the framework of the implementation of the Concept for the creation of a state system for critical infrastructure protection.
The First Vice Prime Minister of Ukraine, the leadership of the Ministry of Economic Development and the SBU unit responsible for the protection of critical infrastructure facilities, outlined key problems and the combined threats in this important area of vital activity of the state.
As noted, prior to the adoption of the Law of Ukraine “On Critical Infrastructure and its Protection”, at this stage, within the framework of the implementation of the Concept, it is necessary to form basic approaches and establish inter-departmental communication in order to: create a national list of critical infrastructure facilities, formulate common requirements for ensuring their protection, develop a National Plan for the Protection and Stability of such facilities, which are critical for the functioning of the society and the socio-economic development of the state.
The proposed measures are necessary to provide an urgent response to the latest challenges and threats to domestic life support facilities and aim at creating a basis for building a state system for their protection.
According to the results of the inter-agency meeting, a decision has been made to create appropriate working groups in state bodies involved in the creation of a critical infrastructure protection system, relevant working groups to ensure the rapid implementation of legislative initiatives, increase the level of interoperability and the ability of the agencies involved to effectively counteract combined threats of the hybrid type.
