Also, to boost the level of protection of defense companies’ information systems, the parties are planning to set up a Security Operations Center), set to be equipped, including with a SIEM (Security Information and Event Management) system, within a grant Ukroboronprom had won earlier.

"We believe that close cooperation with the State Special Service is the key to success. By signing the memorandum, we’d like to start a stable daily interaction on how to build up a cyber defense industry, given the strategic challenges we’re facing," said Roman Bondar, Deputy Director General of Ukroboronprom.

The Ukroboronprom State Concern is Ukraine's strategic manufacturer of weapons and military hardware. The Concern consolidates state unitary enterprises in the strategic sectors of the national defense industry, employing nearly 67,000 workers.

On July 13, 2021, the Verkhovna Rada, Ukraine's parliament, passed a bill on reforming state-owned defense enterprises, paving the way to Ukroboronprom's corporatization.
