Overview

About us

The Cybersecurity Cluster strategy:

The Cybersecuriy Cluster's mission is to ensure that the business environment, public administration and self-government are informed of the importance of cybersecurity perceptions for their security against threats to which their infrastructure (software, hardware, applications and networks) may be exposed.

The Cybersecurity Cluster  aims to engage and promote education at secondary schools, high schools, universities and contribute innovative activities to raising educational standards and awareness in the Slovak Republic in the field of cybersecurity.

At present, the main task of The Cybersecuriy Cluster is to raise awareness in the field of cybersecurity for all levels, areas and diversity of the business environment and the need to ensure the protection of data assets from the potential threats. In the context of the Cybersecurity Act, based on the slovak legislation, we want not only to help entrepreneurs but also municipalities and other entities and facilitate their progress in the process of implementing and subsequently implementing the necessary security measures.

The Cybersecuriy Cluster's mission is to connect not only cluster members but also other industries and academic community to develop cooperation, thereby ensuring innovation in the implementation of security measures and to enable The Cyber Securiy Cluster's members to participate actively in the learning process through dual education and the consequent increase in employment in the Slovak Republic.

Our plan for the near future is to link clusters of similar focus at international level in the first step in the Vishegrád region ( Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Slovak Republic).

The Cybersecuriy Cluster's priorites are:

  • Raising educational standards in the field of cybersecurity.
  • Implementation of innovation (state-of-the-art methods and procedures for detecting threats)
  • Creating active cooperation between The Cyber Securiy Cluster members, business environment, public administration and academic community
