6.6.2019 SK-NIC again supports internet security

The level of knowledge about security risks is relatively low in the Slovak Republic. According to the outcome of the testing across Slovakia – IT Fitness Test in 2018 (Note: Slovak only), the success of students and teachers tested in category “Security and Computer Systems” was only 20% (actually, this annual already started). This fact leads to a re-launch of the #kry-sa project, which aims to raise awareness in the field of internet security. Subjects behind project renewal are IT Association of Slovakia in cooperation with partners from the private sector, like SK-NIC, and public sector, where the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister of the Slovak Republic for Investments and Informatization is the main partner.
