Europe Needs More Work on Cyber Defense

Trend News in Azerbaijan is reporting on a German DPA interview with Estonia's Minister of Defense concerning European readiness to defend against cyber attacks:

"For the time being, Europe's capability to defend itself from cyber-attacks is on the level of some of the capabilities of member states. Little value-added on the European level has been developed: we need to do more," he [Estonian Defence Minister Jaak Aaviksoo] said.

"In particular, the 27-member bloc must work harder to coordinate the efforts of various national defence and law-enforcement agencies and push for better cooperation with third countries which can serve as a safe haven for web-based attackers, he said."

Minister: Europe has not yet done enough on cyber-defence
