Defence Minister Jüri Luik on Friday met with Navy admiral Michael S. Rogers, Director of the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA), Commander of the U.S. Cyber Command (USCYBERCOM) and Chief of the Central Security Service (CSS), to discuss cyber defense cooperation and issues related to the presence of allies in Estonia.

"The importance of cyber defense has drastically increased in the past few years in protection of civil infrastructure, military operations as well as democratic processes. Cooperation in this field with the United States has become increasingly stronger," the Ministry of Defence said in a press release.  

According to Luik, Rogers has played a key role in cooperation and contacts between the two countries becoming more multifaceted. Cyber defense specialists of Estonia and the U.S. take part in joint exercises and information is regularly shared between the two countries. Luik also decorated Rogers with the Cross of Merit of the Estonian Ministry of Defence, 1st class.

During his visit in Estonia, Rogers also met with cyber and information technology specialists as well as chief of the reconnaissance battalion, Col. Kaupo Rosin.

Rogers assumed his posts in April 2014.
