Last year, after Russian invasion to Ukraine, most of the threat actors divided between Russia and Ukraine and most of them began to attack to Russian organizations from all over the world to support Ukraine.
According to the news of securitylab.ru, Ukraine is planning to create a new bill to legalize hacking and other malicious activities in the interests of the country. These actors and groups will be included in the armed forces of Ukraine, structured and legalized.
“The law on the creation and functioning of cyber units within the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine should be adopted as soon as possible,” said Natalia Tkachuk, secretary of the National Cybersecurity Coordination Center of Ukraine.
Again, according to the news, Ukraine also plans to enlist the close support of government hackers from the United States to further build up its forces in this area.
Before, Estonia has created a similar cyber military infrastructure and it seems that Ukraine will use the experience of Estonia for this decision.
According to NATO’s legal analysis, the adoption of the Estonian cyber-reserve model would remove questions about the legal status of the Ukrainian IT army for Ukraine.
