On 15.03.2017 the SFMS documented a cyber-attack on the Unified state information system on prevention and counteraction to legalization (laundering) of the proceeds from crime, terrorist financing and the financing of proliferation of weapons of mass destruction (UIS).
In the Internet segment of UIS, the information, concerning which there are no requirements for limiting access under the legislation, is being processed.
A comprehensive information protection system implemented in UIS (CIPS UIS) has provided an opportunity to block the main influx of threats and restore damaged management information. There was no information leakage. UIS continues to work in the usual routine mode.
Information, that the SFMS obtains from the reporting entities, due to the implemented CIPS UIS, has not come under the cyber-attack.
The mentioned cyber-attack is particularly of high concern in the context of coordination of work on preparation for on-site visit by the MONEYVAL experts, which will be in Ukraine next week within the framework of the 5th round of evaluation of the national system of counteraction to laundering (legalization) of the proceeds from crime, terrorist financing and the financing of proliferation of weapons of mass destruction.
Pursuant to the current legislation, the incident was reported to the Administration of the State Service for Special Communication and Information Protection of Ukraine, which is the central body of the executive power with special status, that ensures development and implements the national policy in the areas of organizing special communications, information protection, telecommunications and use of radio frequency resource of Ukraine, and to the Ministry of Finance of Ukraine, which is the central body of the executive power, that develops and ensures implementation of the state policy in the area of prevention and counteraction to legalization (laundering) of the proceeds from crime or terrorist financing.
