Ukraine gets a window into NATO's cyberwarfare center. The White House asks Congress to allocate money in response to the war, including cybersecurity programs. And a weight-loss app is checked by the FTC for privacy violations. This is CyberScoop for March 7.

Ukraine added to NATO-affiliated cyberwarfare group

After initially denying Ukraine admission to the Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence (CCDCOE), NATO nations voted on Friday to include the embattled country, a development that experts said will help Ukraine fight off mounting cyberthreats from Russia. Experts described CCDCOE as one of the world's most important cyberwarfare organizations and said Ukraine will glean valuable insights on how to face off against Russia's teams of state-sanctioned hackers. Like all non-NATO member countries that participate, Ukraine will join CCDCOE as a "contributing member." Suzanne Smalley has more.

Biden makes aid request for Ukraine cybersecurity, war spillover

The White House is seeking supplemental appropriations to help Ukraine defend itself against Russian cyberattacks as well as to bolster the U.S.'s ability to respond to the cyber elements of Russia's invasion. Under the fiscal 2022 request, the Biden administration would send aid to Ukraine for "accelerated cyber capabilities"; "continuity of government" and resilience work; and to evaluate Ukraine's cybersecurity needs for connecting its electricity grid to Europe's transmission system. Additional money sought would pay for the FBI's "investigative and operational response to cyber threats stemming from the Russia threat and war on Ukraine," and for DOJ to handle Russia-related sanctions. Tim Starks has the rundown.

The Federal Trade Commission and Justice Department slapped a children’s weight loss app Kurbo with a $1.5 million penalty and an order to delete data it collected on thousands of children under 13 allegedly without proper parental consent.

Cyber Command tallies up its foreign deployments

U.S. Cyber Command has deployed personnel 27 separate times to 15 different foreign countries over the last four years, officials said. Maj. Gen. William Hartman, commander of the Cyber National Mission Force, mentioned the overall tally Friday during a presentation as part of the Air Force Association’s Air Warfare Symposium. A CyberCommand spokesman later confirmed the number and expanded on the details, including the fact that most of the missions have occurred since the COVID-19 pandemic began in early 2020. Mark Pomerleau explains at FedScoop.
