The Estonian Internet Foundation supports youth cyber initiatives
The projects approved by the Board had to meet certain criteria, such as relevance to the objectives of the Foundation as an organisation, cyber space relevance, and having the widest possible impact.
The Board endorsed the Information Technology Foundation for Education (HITSA) projects Küberpähkel and the Cyber Security Summer School, as well as the Cyber Olympics collaborative project between the Ministry of Defence and Tallinn University of Technology, thus supporting the participation of an Estonian team in the European Cyber Security Challenge (ECSC).
