In Estonia, it is not shameful to be under a cyber attack, but to deny it

Today, it is more shameful to say that you have not been a target or a victim of cyber-attacks than to deny that you have been attacked.

This is confirmed by Liisa Past, the new head of the National Cyber ​​Security Department of the Ministry of Economy and Communications. The more capable will certainly share information, he adds. According to Past, being immune to cyber attacks doesn’t sound plausible and means you can’t see what’s really going on in your networks, systems and machines.

In the same program, the information security manager of Elisa Estonia, Mai Kraft, also claims that the shame of being a victim of a cyber attack is becoming less and less in Estonia. “In the past, it could have been such a shame that everyone would see that I had things out of order. But today, when it’s quite easy to become a victim of a cyber attack, despite the fact that various security measures are implemented, it starts to be talked about more,” says Kraft.

People understand that the realization of a cyber threat can happen to anyone, and according to Mai Kraft, companies are ready to share this experience more.

In the business technology show, Liisa Past and Mai Kraft discuss, among other things, what conclusions Estonian companies should draw from cyber attacks, how information about these attacks travels and how to test employees’ cyber awareness. The show is hosted by Indrek Kald.
