According to the report, the activities are aimed at training “cyber defense specialists” from NATO countries and testing their ability to protect national networks and networks of the alliance from hacking.

Cyber ​​Coalition is held 11 times, it involves about 700 specialists from NATO countries, partner countries, as well as representatives of academia.

Cyber ​​threats are becoming more frequent, complex and destructive. That is why strengthening cybersecurity is a top priority for NATO today, and training such as the Cyber ​​Coalition is needed to create such protection,
says release.

According to the information, the objectives of the annual exercises are to improve interaction between the countries of the alliance, to increase the effectiveness of both confrontation and ongoing "military operations" in cyberspace.

    But is NATO obligatory to carry out cyber instructions on the border of the Russian Federation? Or are Estonian programmers such famous and busy people that they cannot come to another country?
    Cyber ​​engagements can be held in any country, but NATO has chosen Estonia to conduct exercises on our borders.
    Why shouldn't the Russian Federation conduct cyber-deals in Cuba?

      Estonia helped Azerbaijan a lot with its experience in building the Asan hidmet system. And this is the best thing the government has done for the whole time of its existence for the people. You go into one building and get any documents, from personal ones to those related to business. Thank you for Estonians, it greatly simplified life.

        3700 IT companies ??? I live in Tallinn, but I don’t see such a bunch of companies, in "horns and hooves" for 2-3 people, then in bulk. A lot of software development for casinos, and I go to the department for taxes, it won't take much time: I also pay the store only in cash. God protects the saved, a simple principle.
