The aim of the center is to make more effective use of trainings, excercises and investment that the EU organizes in third countries. In addition, an important role of the center is to advise the European Commission.
“The European Union organizes more and more cyber security related projects outside the EU year-by-year,” head of RIA’s cyber security department Uku Särekanno told news portal Delfi. According to Särekanno, the aim of the new center is to help carry the actions out in a more coordinated way than it is done now.
The project involves several partners, including Germany’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Finland’s cyber security center TRAFFICOM and Luxembourg’s cyber security center Securitymadein.lu.
