Cybersecurity Challenges: Public Administration, Healthcare and the Private Sector

Cybersecurity Challenges: Public Administration, Healthcare and the Private Sector

Tuesday, Nov 30, 2021 From 13:00 to 16:00

online discussion


The discussion will cover a number of topics and offer a perspective on, for example, whether we as a country are safe from attacks, how we protect critical infrastructure, how the nature of attacks evolves over time, or why it is important to invest time and energy on security issues. We will look at these and many other issues from the perspective of state institutions, hospitals but also the private sector.

The aim of the event is to discuss and analyze the current situation in an informal atmosphere, identify challenges and potentially define practical recommendations across sectors so that we can strengthen the security of our country and bring information security to every part of our lives.

The discussion will be led by Mr. Pavol Adamec, KPMG's Director of Cyber Security, who has more than 20 years of experience in IT, risk management and strategy. He is a frequent speaker on topics related to technological trends and their impact on business. He serves as a member of the ISACA Chapter Board of Directors in Slovakia and leads preparatory courses for ISACA professional certifications.
