The Estonian Police and Border Guard Board is in a process of forming a dedicated cyber crime unit to deal with crimes that target information technology.

The unit will start in 2016 and will employ 8 experts, working under the Central Criminal Police department.

It will be put in charge of the cases where the criminal motive has been to harm computers or IT. The unit will also support other police departments with know-how and skills.

Estonia has an internationally reputable expertise in cyber security. The country has a Cyber Defense League and the NATO Cooperative Cyber Defence Center of Excellence is based in Talllinn.
