Strengthening cyber-security capacities in the Czech Republic

The project submitted reacts to the increasing importance of cyber security and to the necessity of protection against cyber-attacks both at the national and European level. Its wide range of measures contributes towards strengthening online trust and security as one of the key pillars of the Digital Agenda for Europe Strategy. This goal may be efficiently reached thanks to linking competences of both project partners–the CZ.NIC Association, operating the national security team CSIRT.CZ and the NIX.CZ Association, operating independent Internet Exchange Points (IXPs) in the Czech Republic and Slovakia. During the project, both organizations will prepare for tasks and responsibilities arising from the NIS Directive.
