Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the Riigikogu (Parliament of Estonia) Marko Mihkelson participates in the 12th Parliamentary Intelligence-Security Forum in Washington, USA, where the legislators will discuss counter-terrorism finance efforts, and threats to privacy and information sharing.
Issues relating to cyber security are also on the agenda of the Forum. Mihkelson thinks that Estonia’s resources for acting in the large cyber ocean are limited, and therefore it is necessary to act wisely and follow the trends carefully.
“Estonia has an excellent reputation in cyber security, but the development must not stop,” Mihkelson emphasised. “We must be well aware of the developments in cyber security in order to use our strengths in the best way and continue to stay in the picture globally.” Mihkelson added that application of international law in cyber space, which Estonia and our many allies support, would be discussed at the Forum.
Chairman of the Security Authorities Surveillance Select Committee Raivo Aeg also attends the Parliamentary Intelligence-Security Forum.
From Sunday to Tuesday, Mihkelson as the Head of the Estonian Delegation to the NATO Parliamentary Assembly will participate in NATO PA Transatlantic Forum and related events, which are also held in Washington. The Estonian delegation also includes Hannes Hanso and Oudekki Loone.
