On November 22, the Ministry of Defense State Secretary Janis Garisons and Polish National Cybersecurity Center director Brigadier General Karol Molenda signed an agreement on cooperation between the two countries' military information technology incident response teams, the Ministry of Defense said.

"The aim of the agreement is to establish a framework for cooperation between the Polish National Cyber ​​Security Center and the Latvian Military Information Technology Security Incident Team (MilCERT) in order to develop the cyber defense capabilities of both countries by exchanging knowledge and experience," the Ministry said.

The agreement also envisages strengthening the protection of Latvian and Polish computer networks by sharing information on current cyber threats, as well as organizing joint training and exchanges.

Appropriately, the agreement was signed online. Latvia and Poland also co-operate in the field of cyber security within the framework of the European Union Computer Security Incident Response Team (CSIRT).

MilCERT monitors the information and communication technologies of the Ministry of Defense and its subordinate institutions, including the National Armed Forces. MilCERT operates in close cooperation with the civilian Information Technology Security Incident Prevention Institution (CERT.LV).
