There are three issues that I deem important and want to share with you – the importance of cyber hygiene for all our citizens, the importance of really understanding cyber security for all the decision-makers, and the role that the European Defence Agency could have in all of this.</p> <p>There is probably no need to stress to anybody in this room the importance of cyber security. But I am not equally sure that this sense of importance and urgency is shared by most people outside this conference venue. Very important to move form cyber defence to cyberhygiene, technology will not help us against human factor.</p> <p>Take, for example, the case of the e-mail hack of the US Democratic National Convention of 2016. Whatever we might think of who was behind this operation or how much influence this incident had on the US presidential election results, the fact seems to be, that it was largely made possible by hacking the accounts of Clinton's campaign chairman John Podesta. It was not an elaborate technical operation, but rather a very simple phishing operation. Meaning that somebody posed as Google Mail and fooled both Mister Podesta and his IT-support people to giving his passwords. This, combined with not having a two-factor authentication, caused one of the most talked-about e-mail hacks of the last years. And shows – among other things – how little people adhere to basic cyber hygiene and what the consequences might be.</p> <p>Of course we should never blame the victim, it's just the overall amount or cycle of a problem. And it will continue to be a problem as long as people use "password", "12345" or "qwerty" continue to be most popular passwords. And I am also quite sure that there is at least a couple of people in this room who might actually share the same kind of passwords.</p> <p>Therefore – along all the fancy initiatives, cyber defence programs and new institutions that we create, we must not forget that the human factor and basic cyber hygiene continue to be things that will cause security breaches and incidents also in the future. I do admit that enforcing cyber hygiene is mainly a matter for Member States, but European Union can surely be in this matter a backer and contributor to awareness raising projects. And I am sure that every Member State is doing something in this field. But enhanced message from all of us to our citizens is needed. Given importance of the topic I believe that it would be very practical to learn from each other and also share the best practices, which have helped to raise the level of cyberhygiene in societies.</p> <p>Dear Mister Domecq, ladies and gentlemen,</p> <p>I know that I am the last firewall between you and lunchtime, therefore let me get down to business right away.

Including women. In Estonian language, the grammatical gender is missing. Linguistically, Estonian men and women are equal by nature. Also, it was on the belt of Estonian women where the warehouse keys hung, not the men's in the old times.</p> <p>This was already well organized, but for some reason it begun to change by the 18th century. We, as all other women in the world somehow lost our capacity to lead our communities and our societies. Up to the end of the 18th century, in Estonia men preferred women who had had children before they got married. That showed they were powerful, they were beautiful, they were interesting. Then it changed. I would not point any fingers, but we arrived at the point, where we had to don our feminist hat. The feminist hat has come in very different formats. Sometimes we have had to wear a bright pink one with ears on it etc. We all know these occasions.</p> <p>Our history also includes 50 years of occupation by the Soviet Union. Of course, in the Soviet Union women all worked. But they kept poorly paid, well-educated positions. Most of the doctors, all teachers, all bookkeepers, all nurses were women in Estonia and in many other occupied territories or Soviet Republics during the Soviet time. According to the communist ideology, physical work was more worth than educated one. The educational gap: educated women versus uneducated men, took its beginning under Soviet rule. And with it came, of course, the pay gap, because of course you pay less for the women in their jobs. Both problems – difficulties to educate boys to tertiary level and the pay gap – persist. I believe both deserve our attention because a lack of education part of the population definitely poses a big problem for respecting women's rights and accepting that women are equals. If you do not have an education, you may come from an inferiority viewpoint and then it might be difficult to see that we all need to be equal. Even if you are physically stronger.</p> <p>Distinguished guests, commissioners, dear participants,</p> <p>It is a pleasure to be here with you today, at this beautiful venue.</p> <p>I do not know how many of you know, but historically Estonia, the current Presidency of the Council country, is a Nordic peasant country and like in all Nordic countries that meant that all adults had to work hard in order to sustain their living.
