November 28 (SeeNews) - Bulgaria will allocate 4 million levs ($2.2 million/2 million euro) in total next year to help small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) improve their cybersecurity, the e-government ministry said on Tuesday.
The programme will provide grants of up to 120,000 levs per company, facilitating the adoption of modern cybersecurity solutions, the ministry said in a statement.
The project is related to the development of the network of national coordination centres, as information sharing is an essential part of cybersecurity.
There is a lack of specialists in information technology and cybersecurity across the European Union, according to e-government minister Alexander Yolovski. He also noted the need for Bulgaria to stay competitive, highlighting the project's role in renewing the cybersecurity ecosystem and promoting collaboration at the European level.
Since the beginning of 2023, Bulgaria has registered over 6,100 cyber incidents, compared to some 4,100 reported last year.
The network of national coordination centres (NCCs) comprises 27 centres, one from each EU member state, according to the European Cybersecurity Competence Centre's website. It aims to enhance research excellence and the EU's competitiveness in cybersecurity.
(1 euro = 1.95583 levs)
