U.S. pledges $8 mln to Ukraine for cybersecurity assistance

The U.S. State Department announced that the U.S. would give Ukraine $8 million in cybersecurity assistance funds as part of a "cyber dialogue" held in Kiev between officials from the two countries.

The $8 million will go toward funding a new cybersecurity project sponsored by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), with the project setting a goal of eventually investing $38 million over the next four years in boosting Ukraine’s cybersecurity capabilities, such as through cyber workforce development and regulatory reforms, the Hill reported.

The U.S. previously gave Ukraine $10 million in cybersecurity assistance funds in 2017 as part of the first U.S.-Ukraine cyber dialogue summit, with officials from the two countries meeting again in 2018 to review cybersecurity projects between the two countries.
