Volume 504: debated on Monday 18 January 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what (a) financial and (b) other assistance the UK is providing to the NATO Cyber-security Centre of Excellence in Estonia. (311352)

The United Kingdom is fully supportive of this Estonian-hosted Cyber Defence initiative and their endeavours in this important area.

We have not made a direct financial contribution to the costs of the Co-operative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence. Both the current head of the MOD Defence Security and Assurance Service and his predecessor, as well as other senior officers and Government officials, have visited the Centre of Excellence, participated in its conferences and in specific mutually beneficial work-streams.
