The Estonian Ministry of Defence, in cooperation with Georgia, has prepared a training and exercise package aimed at raising the southern European country’s cyber security capability.
The two countries have opened an extensive cyber related series of trainings in Georgia, in order to ensure the uninterrupted functioning of Georgian governmental authorities and vital information systems, thereby providing broader support for the functioning of the entire state.
The project facilitates the work of all agencies in Georgia, including the president’s office, the government and the various key ministries, such as the interior and foreign affairs.
Training is carried out by the experts from the Estonian Information System Authority and BHC Laboratory, a Tallinn-based company.
The Estonian Ministry of Defence has previously carried out similar cyber security related training in Ukraine.
Estonia has in recent years become one of the leading nations in cyber security sphere. The NATO Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence is also based in Tallinn.
