Information security is not about electronic systems alone. Individuals, businesses, different kinds of organisations and nation states need to secure themselves, not only in cyberspace, yet primarily there, where it intersects with the world of men. Infosecurity.sk seeks to identify and analyse threats to national security undermining societal cohesion in order to make them visible to the public at large.
In Slovakia there are several worthwhile projects and individual authors, who guide readers through the intricate network of political marketing, right- and left-wing extremism, „fake news“, disinformation, „alternative news“, conspiracies, revisionist attempts, etc.
Infosecurity.sk operates in this environment together with others and seeks to support the collective effort. An educated, well-informed public, with advanced critical thinking skills guarantees resistance to information operations and malicious actors of all kinds. We strive to contribute to that.
