Bulgaria Assumes New Cyber Security Approach

Bulgaria Assumes New Cyber Security Approach

Bulgaria has taken on a new strategy designed to improve cyber security in the nation, making it among the last European nations to do so, according to reports.

A document, titled ‘National Cyber Security Strategy Cyber Resilient Bulgaria 2020‘, reveals visions of a Cyber-resilience Council to act as a consultative body, with Bulgaria’s Council of Ministers ruling over the body.

The National Cyber-security Coordinator for Bulgaria, George Sharkov, who also advises the nation’s Ministry of Defence on cyber security, spoke to SCMagazineUK.com when he said that the government established his coordinator role in 2009 and reactivated it in 2014.

He said:

“My major mission so far was to complete the national cyber-security strategy – we’re almost the last in Europe and NATO without such [a strategy] – and to proceed with the Action Plan, monitoring respective projects, the needed institutionalisation, etc.”

However, he added that the strategy acknowledges that coordination is a major responsibility at both national and global levels, both in terms of operational and strategic function, and implementation.

The Cyber-resilience Council will have a key role to play in developing the cyber security policy, working with the Security Council, says one government representative. The Security Council governs national security and manages the country’s emergency procedure.

Bulgaria is clearly taking a very serious stance on cyber security. However, businesses in Bulgaria, and in fact Europe as a whole, need to be more proactive in creating cyber security jobs in order to combat threats immediately should an attack occur.
