The full-scale invasion of Russia into Ukraine has caused numerous issues in the field of cybersecurity and underlined the importance of IT infrastructure. In early 2022, Russia carried out multiple cyberattacks aimed at disrupting critical infrastructure in Ukraine. The country could have lost control due to the destruction of its computer infrastructure. In such a scenario, Ukraine would not have been able to withstand Russian aggression. However a big and successful effort has been made to counter the attacks and today Ukraine still has a working IT infrastructure although very different from the one prior to February 2022.

In my presentation, I will give an overview of the cyberwarfare situation in Ukraine and cover these topics:

  • Examples of Russian cyberattacks and the efforts to counter them
  • The migration of critical public IT applications to the (public) cloud
  • The migration of Privatbank’s services to AWS
