“>Helsingin Sanomat – International Edition – Foreign: “Alliance experts to train Finns against online attacks.

There are plans for cooperation with a NATO unit set up in the Estonian capital Tallinn. The unit is specialised in defending data networks against cyber-attacks…”

“A considerable impetus leading to the establishment of NATO’s cyber defence centre came in the spring of 2007 when the dispute over the location of a Soviet war monument in Tallinn led to online denial of service attacks against Estonia, which shut down the web pages of the Estonian government for several days.

Georgia experienced similar attacks during fighting with Russia last year.”
