#1in Europe in cyber security

Following its experience with the 2007 cyber attacks, Estonia emerged as a leader in cyber security and was recently ranked first in Europe due to its multi-stakeholder approach to technical, legal and operational cyber defence.

Strong technical skills exist in many areas including intrusion detection, protection systems, encryption and use of Blockchain technologies to ensure data and system integrity and combat insider risk.

World class cyber companies such as Symantec and Malwarebytes use Estonia as a base to research, develop and manage their consumer and enterprise solutions. Guardtime, the world’s largest blockchain company, trust Estonia to provide their cryptographers,
developers and security architects.

Estonia is also expert at protecting complex high-tech systems, being home to the NATO Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence (NATO CCD COE) and European Agency for the operational management of large-scale IT systems (EU LISA).

Estonia is at the forefront of thought leadership and international co-operation on cyber security issues through its e-Governance Academy and hosting of the CyCon conference and Locked Shields preparedness exercise. The Tallinn Manuals are the most comprehensive analysis of how international law applies to cyberspace today.

As business becomes increasingly digitalised and cybercrime a significant factor in client relationships and business valuation, Estonian expertise and solutions are well placed to keep the digital economy safe.
