The project will train Ukrainian civil servants in cyber hygiene develop further specialised advanced training on cybersecurity for ICT personal from select ministries, an awareness campaign and a specialised compliance cybersecurity checklist for government authorities to improve vulnerabilities.



The project aims to enhance the capacity of the National Agency of Ukraine for Civil Service (NAUCS) and Ukrainian School of Governance (USG) to train Ukrainian civil servants on principles of cyber hygiene by providing the developed general short-term certification programme “Cyber Hygiene Essentials” and ICT equipment required for its teaching.


Rapid development of information technologies and, thus, increasing vulnerability of state information systems urge the need for sustainable efforts in creating safe and secure cyber environment. Recognizing the importance of responsible cybersecurity practices among civil servants at different levels or hierarchy, the OSCE Project Co-ordinator developed the educational series of videos “Cyber Hygiene Essentials”.

Cyber hygiene is a set of practices and efforts that computer system administrators and users can undertake to improve and maintain their security online while they engage in everyday online activities, such as web browsing, emailing, texting, etc. In addition to the protection of networks and equipment, the cyber hygiene practices are often part of a routine to ensure the safety of identity and other details that could be stolen or corrupted.


The outcome of the project will be improved cyber hygiene practices by Ukrainian civil servants.


The intended outputs include:

  • 1,200 civil servants complete the OSCE’s “Cyber Hygiene Essentials” course.
  • Cyber awareness campaign
  • A specialised compliance cybersecurity checklist for government authorities
