Combating Cyber Attacks Needs Cooperation

Via UPI.

Estonia's defense minister said Tuesday that countering the evolving security threat from cyberattacks will require strengthening international cooperation.

Jaak Aaviksoo, the Estonian defense minister, called on the international community to work together and share techniques and intelligence to counter the global cyber-terrorism threat.

Aaviksoo, speaking Tuesday at an Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe cybersecurity workshop in Vienna, said that countries must be proactive about collaboration and efficient cooperation.

"All OSCE states would, in my opinion, benefit from a more clear-cut arrangement where countries could discuss and share know-how and expertise to improve their own and other states' capabilities to withstand cyber attacks," Aaviksoo said in a statement.

"This could come in the form of workshops or other forms of multilateral cooperation and would be especially beneficial for countries where cybersecurity is still evolving."
