YEREVAN. – Considering the need for the creation of modern military units that ensure the cyber security of the army, the Ministry of Defense of Armenia has decided to follow the respective leading world track-record.  

The Armenian’s sources informed that the Armenian army will soon have a training center for the pre-military draft-age youth, and a highly qualified professional team in the Armed Forces.    

As a result of the implementation of this program, the corresponding units of the Armenian Armed Forces will be complemented by qualified conscripts and highly qualified information technology (IT) specialists.

We attempted to verify this information by contacting Armenian defense minister’s press secretary Artsrun Hovhannisyan, who neither confirmed nor denied this information. He added, however, that the reforms within the Armenian Armed Forces assume multiple steps, and the modern-day information security challenges also have an important place in this respect.
