Today, in Tbilisi, Priit Turk, Estonian Ambassador to Georgia, and Davit Ebralidze, Deputy Minister of Defence of the Republic of Georgia, opened an extensive cyber related series of trainings.
The Estonian Ministry of Defence, in cooperation with Georgia, has prepared a training and exercise package aimed at raising the country’s cyber security capability, in order to ensure the uninterrupted functioning of Georgian governmental authorities and vital information systems, thereby providing broader support for the functioning of the entire state. The project facilitates the work of all agencies in Georgia, including the Office of the President of the Republic, the government, the Ministry of the Interior, the Ministry of Justice, the Ministry of Economic Affairs, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Finance, and the administration of state information systems dependent on information and communications technology solutions.
Training is carried out by the Information System Authority and BHC Laboratory experts. The project is being financed from the Estonian Ministry of Foreign Affairs development cooperation funds.
The Ministry of Defence has experience in carrying out similar cyber security related training in Ukraine, where the project was realised with the help of a disbursement from the reserve fund of the Government of the Republic.
