The Head of State tested the secure video conference system having a conversation with Chernihiv RSA Head Valeriy Kulich who informed the President on the situation in the region.
President Petro Poroshenko visited the State Service of Special Communication and Information Protection of Ukraine and tested secure video conference system.
The President noted that the secure video conference expanded the opportunities of efficient coordination and interaction with Ukrainian regions and emphasized that 'in war conditions, information transmitted via these channels will be protected from those who do not have permission to access it'.
Petro Poroshenko noted the potential of the secure video conference. 'It creates new opportunities for the improvement of our coordination with regions. And not only with governors. The number of subscribers will be broadened significantly,' the President said.
The Head of State noted that the State Service of Special Communication and Information Protection of Ukraine was actively modernizing the information protection system.
'In late 2013 – early 2014, the situation was terrible. We had Russian software only. The country-aggressor had fully open access to all our state secrets. We had to develop information protection software from scratch and ensure radical re-equipment and reboot of confidential communication systems,' Petro Poroshenko said.
The President also noted the importance of cooperation between the State Service of Special Communication and Information Protection and Ministry of Defense, Security Service and border guards on the protection of military communications and secret information.
As reported earlier by 1492news.com, Petro Poroshenko rewarded more than 200 soldiers, who displayed personal courage and high professionalism.
