Today at the 2012 IT Conference of the World Customs Organisation (WCO) in Tallinn, Foreign Minister Urmas Paet said that in today’s world information and communication technology is no longer a separate sector but rather a component of all parts of life in society.
When talking about cyber security, the foreign minister said that companies and governments must know how to protect themselves from potential threats. “However, this means that we need trust and co-operation among nations,” said Paet.
The foreign minister recognised the work of the Estonian National Cyber Defence League and said that co-operation between Estonia’s public and private sectors in this area could set an example for everyone. “Openness is essential, therefore we must actively promote secure and trustworthy solutions that are beneficial to all parties,” he added.
