The Estonian Government has released a strategy paperon enhancing cyber security. This is an interesting read as we can all learn from the lessons of the cyber attacks against Estonia last year. The report makes for interesting reading and yet it is still sad to see that governments and many organisations only take computer security seriously after they have suffered a major attack.
Do you think this paper would have seen the light of day had Estonia not been a victim to a major Distributed Denial of Service attack last year? I also wonder how many government officials here in Ireland are working on a similar paper to defend the Irish Internet space?
