Cyber Brama project website presented in Kyiv

The Cyber Brama project, which aims to provide citizens with knowledge on how to safely use the Internet, prevent and counteract criminal acts on the Internet, and avoid becoming a victim of hostile propaganda, has launched its own website.

The presentation of this site was held at Ukrinform.

“We have created the most practical website for citizens. I would like to thank (for the work on the project – ed.) all the partners, including the International Renaissance Foundation, the EU, cyber police, partners from the EUAM (European Union Advisory Mission to Ukraine – ed.) and the developers, the Yedyntsi company, who implemented all our ideas and wishes,” said Anastasia Apetyk, co-founder and chairman of the board of the NGO MINZMIN.

According to Andriy Sharonov, First Deputy Head of the Cyber Police Department of the National Police of Ukraine, the project was originally called Mriya, and then it was rebranded to Cyber Brama.

“This is our joint project with volunteers, and more than 300 thousand of our citizens have already joined it. This is, among other things, an opportunity for our citizens to join the active opposition to the spread of fake information, in particular from the Russian Federation. The project’s objectives include the destruction of Russian centers on the Internet, reducing the level of cyberbullying and harassment, as well as countering fraud and drug trafficking, etc.” Sharonov said.

Viktoriia Omelianenko, co-founder of the NGO MINZMIN, informed that the website has a number of sections: “Cybersecurity in Education,” “Cybersecurity at Work,” “Cybersecurity in Everyday Life,” “Cybersecurity in Entertainment and Communication,” and “Cybersecurity in Wartime,” among others.

The site also has a section called “Guide” – a practical guide for anyone to understand how to use various applications and social networks, websites, search engines, etc. There is also a Dictionary section that contains all the basic and relevant terms for understanding the online space.

In the News section, cyber police publish all the latest news and updates in the field of cybersecurity. The site also has a “Report a Problem” section.

The portal is currently in testing and content mode and is constantly updating its content.

EUAM Ukraine’s Conrad Woodtke said that the implementation of this online project together with the cyber police and other stakeholders marks a transition to deeper and more fruitful cooperation in the future.

As reported, the Brama project is an initiative aimed at raising public awareness of cybersecurity and countering the spread of enemy propaganda in the media space.

“Brama was created before the full-scale invasion of Russia and was initially used to prevent the spread of drugs, in particular through Telegram. However, the full-scale war changed the focus of this project and now it helps to fight Russian IPSO and propaganda.

The Cyber Brama project was created by the European Union Advisory Mission Ukraine on the initiative of the Cyber Police Department of the National Police of Ukraine, in partnership with the NGO MINZMIN, with the assistance of the International Renaissance Foundation and financial support from the European Union. The website was developed by the marketing and web development agency Yedynka.
