Short History

Cybernetica was established as a private limited company in 1997 as the successor of the applied research unit of the Institute of Cybernetics of the Academy of Sciences of Estonia, established in 1960. The applied research and development laboratory of the Institute had an integral role in delivering large scale factory automation projects, but also founding the scientific paradigms for information security and cryptography in Estonia.

Today, Cybernetica is known as a key player in several world-renowned e-Government projects, such as developing the Estonian X-Road platform or the Internet voting software, but also in the domain of radio communication solutions, mostly for Maritime Authorities. As part of its heritage, Cybernetica still focuses on research and development, especially in information security – its stand-alone Institute of Information Security works in collaboration with the top universities from Europe, but also with institutions from the USA and Japan.

Cybernetica has been part of all the critical digitization reforms and projects in Estonia, including developing the legislation for the Digital Signature Act (2002), piloting the Estonian ID-card, developing the secure data exchange platform X-Road (2001), developing the Internet voting solution (2005). More recently among other things, Cybernetica has deployed a VAT fraud detection system to the Estonian Tax and Customs Board (2016), the Smart-ID digital identity service together with SK ID Solutions based on SplitKey technology (2017), created a smart grid platform labelled Estfeed for Elering (2018).

Cybernetica was the Estonian Defence Industry Company of the Year 2014, and has been awarded the Baltic Innovation Prize 2011, Quality Innovation of the Year prize in 2014, and EU Cyber Security & Privacy Innovation Award in 2015, among others.
