PSSI held a lecture with Daniel Bagge, Director of Cyber Security Policies Department at the National Cyber Security Center (NCSC)


Participants of the PSSI security scholars program had a unique privilege to hear a lecture by Daniel Bagge, Director of Cyber Security Policies Department at the National Cyber Security Center (NCSC) in Brno. 

At first, Mr Bagge provided a brief introduction into what cyber security is and how its various aspects affect our daily lives. It was pointed out that with the rise of Internet and related technologies, cyberspace offers both opportunities and possible challenges. Since the pace of cyber attacks increases every year, cyberspace has now rightly been recognized as the fifth domain of warfare. This shift in thinking also means that cyber defense is being taken more seriously and a series of countries are already taking proactive measures to address this challenge.

The main topic of the lecture was the presentation of National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) in Brno, which is subordinate to the National Security Authority (NSA). It is important to bear in mind that this institution is only one from the network of organizations that protect cyberspace in the Czech Republic. Since its inception, NCSC has been able to gain a remarkable reputation. It has a unique structure, which brings together technical and analytical experts. They also conduct a number of realistic and sophisticated exercises by using innovative approaches.

Discussions then addressed the issue of cyber security within Czech institutions. Since this problem is still relatively new; the current situation is far from ideal. On the other hand Mr Bagge pointed out several positive examples such as a very capable police department for combating cyber crime in Brno. Yet, the key to increasing cyber security remains to be in the realm of  greater focus on education and improved general awareness.
