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).
In today's world, secure and effective personal identification of end users is becoming more and more important in order to protect both companies and service users from possible bad guys and theft. In addition to security, the convenience and flexibility of the solution cannot be left behind. For this very purpose, the Estonian Internet Foundation has created the eeID personal identification service, which offers a strong authentication solution with an international reach.
Every year, the Estonian Internet Foundation (EIF) supports projects and activities that contribute to the development of Internet-related knowledge. Thereby, we contribute to the development and growth of the local internet community. The beginning of the year is a good time to take a look at the results of the projects and activities supported in 2023.
