Nato has completed a multi-year project that involved enhancing Mongolia’s cyber defence capabilities.

The project involved setting up a cybersecurity centre for the Mongolian Armed Forces, providing specialised training and equipment and necessary technical support.

The new Centre and Cyber Incident Response Capability was recently inaugurated virtually by Nato deputy secretary-general Mircea Geoană and Mongolia’s Minister of Defence Saikhanbayar Gursed.

At the event, Geoană said that the project, which ran between 2017 and 2020, will improve the resilience and security of Mongolia’s information technology systems.

The capability will allow Mongolian Armed Forces to respond to cyber attacks and collaborate with other nations on cybersecurity.

Geoană added: “The successful completion of this project means that Mongolia is now better equipped to prevent, mitigate, and respond to cyber challenges that seek to threaten its institutions.”

Minister Gursed said: “This project is a complete package, with the inclusion of effective cyber training for the cybersecurity team and provision of the equipment with the latest technology and official licencing.”

Mongolia is a Nato partner, and the Nato Science for Peace and Security Programme has played an important role in developing practical cooperation.

Senior SPS and Partnership Cooperation Advisor Dr Deniz Beten said: “The wide range of activities supported by the Nato Science for Peace and Security Programme helps to create a thriving community of scientists, experts and policymakers across the world, from Nato and partner countries, who share knowledge and develop innovative ideas to address the security challenges of today and tomorrow.”
