Ulaanbaatar, February 29, 2024. /MONTSAME/. The Ministry of Digital Development and Communications of Mongolia, Cybersecurity Council Secretariat, JICA Representative Office in Mongolia, and GMO Internet Group jointly conducted a “Cybersecurity Specialists Training” course on February 29, 2024.


The Head of the Cybersecurity Council Secretariat Ch. Zolbayar informed that, on average, 767,008,652 IP address violations are registered in Mongolia per week. Of this number, malicious code accounts for 71 percent, system search for 20 percent, vulnerability gap exploitation for 4.4 percent, and password hacking violations for 2.1 percent. He noted, “In maintaining cybersecurity, the interplay of three things is important: people, process, and technology. Although the State Great Khural of Mongolia and the Government of Mongolia have created a conducive legal environment to solve the problems that arise in investment and technology, there still exists the challenge of capacity-building.”


The training is led by instructors from the GMO Internet Group, and Japanese specialists conducted combined practice and theory sessions on cybersecurity risks, basic web system settings errors, and understanding hacks against vulnerabilities.

Last year, the Cybersecurity Council Secretariat and the Ministry of Digital Development and Communications jointly conducted six training sessions with JICA, which were attended by over 300 people. The training sessions, organized in collaboration with JICA, are a part of a multifaceted effort to enhance the skills of cybersecurity professionals.
