The Cyber Security branch of the Estonian Information System Authority recently published their annual Cyber Security Report for 2015. The full report can be found here. “In this year’s report, RIA identified four major cyber threats to Estonia: cybercrime, cyber espionage, cyber weapons and user inadequacies,” writes Maldre. The report also details the type and number of incidents which occurred over the past year.
“All in all, the RIA report continues to show that technological trends and threats are relevant to everyone, from individuals using their ID-cards to ministries protecting the most sensitive data. The so-called “arms race” between defenders and attackers is continuing at a rapid pace, and Estonia needs to stay in front of the threats personally, technically, legally and strategically. The country has certainly seen how leadership in cyber security and e-government has not only contributed to domestic productivity but has also paid off in terms its international reputation and respectability.”
