Responsibility in Digital Age: Awareness in Cyber Security


02. 10. 2018



AmCham Slovakia always strives to actively address relevant issues with impact on the majority of its 330+ member companies as well as the Slovak and regional business environments.

Significant growth of digital economy goes in hand with increasing importance of cyber security and data protection. As a result, these areas have been subject to several regulatory changes in recent months both in Slovakia and the EU.

Moreover, companies pay more attention to raising awareness about the risks and threats that come with the exponential rise of technologies. They invest more in awareness campaigns for their business partners and employees. Cyber security will also need to become part of the formal education curricullum soon to catch up with the demands of the Generation Z.

›› Protecting Critical Infrastructure
•    Government´s role and activities in protecting critical infrastructure essential for Slovak economy

›› Global Trends for Local Companies
