"We're well aware that in today's world it's possible to influence the situation in states by using these methods (cyberwar)," Mariusz Blaszczak told local media at a military cyber training centre in Zegrze, near the capital Warsaw.

Blaszczak said that the force's command unit would begin operation in 2022.

Poland would have enough IT graduates by 2024 to provide the force with 2,000 personnel qualified in cyberdefence, he added.
