  • comparative analysis of international and national legislative documents was performed with the objective to reveal discrepant provisions and determine possible ways of their addressing;
  • list of national regulatory documents establishing policies, technical and resource factors impacting creation and functioning of the state level threat model was developed;
  • list of required though absent documents was developed, requirements regarding their development were formulated, optimum level of the documents was justified (Laws of Ukraine, international acts, etc.).
