The first Cyber Security Forum in Tbilisi has been held by the government of Georgia to identify problems in Georgian cybersecurity and find ways to settle them with the involvement of the diplomatic corps and international institutions. 

US Ambassador to Georgia Kelly Degnan has urged the government to urgently ratify the national cybersecurity strategy and an action plan.

She said that roles and duties should be clearly defined in the field for the existing problems to be resolved. 

Degnan said that proper cybersecurity protection during the election period is of ‘the utmost importance’.
