  • Estonian Cyber Defence Unit

    Posted on January 21st, 2011 Mr. Leo Siemann No comments

    Recent years have proved that cyber crime is a growing problem. As many other countries so have we experienced cyber attacks to our national media, banks and government sites. As usual our main concern is about Russian hackers , who have managed to damage our cyber-space in 2007 and also in the beginning of 2011. Damage has been counted in millions of euros.

    So, it is not a suprise why our state has decided to go one step further and create our national Cyber Defence Unit as Estonian Free press reveales :

    Although it is the very last hour of the year 2010 and most people are having a party , I would like to remind us that mother nature is full of magic! Estonia experienced the heaviest snowfall of this Winter 2 days ago with 75cm of white stuff * New York had its fare share’ just before and UK was white all-over week ago. Another snowstorm is on its way from South-Estonia to up North tomorrow … In order to help people who travel, sharing real-time information about roads and various places, TORMI-INFO page has been established on Facebook. Ones english cousin – UK STORM & FLOOD INFO was born about month later and is just 3 days old to date. Both pages work on public support getting information to the Web using Social Media over smartphones, tablets and PCs. If you happen to travel either of these countries, it is important to send us your feedback from your journey as it could help others to avoid traffic jams, to plan their routes better or just staying at home all together 🙂

  • Summer kicks in !

    Posted on July 19th, 2010 Mr. Leo Siemann No comments

    Strawberries and cream, Claret Jug and St.Andrews, beach and Polo … British Summertime seems to be great this year indeed ! Not much rain either which makes it even more special : )  Who needs holidays abroad if our own summer is good as gold ?

    This weeks BBCs tech programme “Click” announced that due to new conservative government policies Britain is unable to achieve 2Mbit/s  as national internet speed standard by 2012. Obviously there are other priorities as recession may get worse and we got to tighten our belts even harder !

    As estonian, I must admit I am proud of our country who is aiming to 100Mbit/s internet speed standard by 2011. Also 4G mobile network has been tested successfully last Spring and its working in some places already  🙂   So, if you like fast internet and you would like to see the nation who has the most PCs per capita in the World – its good time to see it now ! Our beaches are nice & quiet and temperatures are soaring +30c.  So, better not wait too long as it may drop to -30c in six months time …
