Digital Edge together with ISACA-Kyiv chapter Hosts First-Ever American-Ukrainian Privacy and Compliance Cyber-Summit in Kyiv, Ukraine

The First American-Ukrainian Privacy and Compliance Cyber-Summit took place at Admiral Hall in Kyiv, Ukraine, last Thursday, on February 25th, 2021.

The speakers presented both in-person in Kyiv and online from New York, NY, in a mixed format. 


Together with the ISACA Kyiv Chapter and the Institute of Information Security, Digital Edge brought together cybersecurity experts to conduct a unique event in Ukraine to provide participants with a deep understanding of such subjects as:

  • Cybersecurity standards, their implementation, and operation;
  • Implementation of controls;
  • Key performance indicators;
  • Daily activities of IT organizations;
  • Internal and external audits;
  • Information security management system and its effectiveness;
  • Risks.


"The question of data privacy is very complex. A few years ago, the European Union signed a major and comprehensive legislative regulation on data security issues. All European companies must adhere to certain standards. U.S. law is also complex in this area: The United States requires IT professionals to know the law. ” Michael Petrov, Founder, and CEO at Digital Edge


The speakers were:

  • Michael Petrov - Founder and CEO of Digital Edge;
  • James Greenberg - Member of the Board of Digital Edge;
  • Slava Rykhva - Certified Professional in Information Security Systems at Digital Edge;
  • Keith Barry - Vice President of Compliance at Digital Edge;
  • Artem Bidenko - Chairman of the Board of the Institute of Information Security;
  • Konstantin Mozgovoy - Project Manager at Digital Edge.


Digital Edge came up with the idea for the seminar after decades of working in the field and becoming a leader in privacy and compliance. 

Earlier, a related event had taken place for New York Metropolitan ISACA Chapter. 

Similar training events are planned for Cyprus, the Netherlands, and Canada this spring.
