Estonian President Toomas Hendrik Ilves—an internationally recognized expert on cyber technology and a strong supporter of NATO—joined us at The Fletcher School a few weeks ago for an engaging lecture about cybersecurity, Europe, NATO and transatlantic relations.

“You can shut down a country without ever having a shot fired.” – President Ilves

During his visit, I took the opportunity to interview President Ilves about the current economic climate in Estonia and the country’s commitment to military spending—Estonia is one of the few NATO countries that meets agreed-upon targets for military spending—as well as his current views on cyber security.

For more from President Ilves, read our coverage and view his lecture to the Tufts community, “What Keeps Me Awake at Night? Worries and Challenges for a Small European Ally.”
