NKE sets up cyber security academy in Budapest

The lack of IT and cyber security knowledge and experts creates a huge problem in both Europe and Hungary

The National University of Public Services (NKE) in Budapest has set up an academy of cyber security.

According to Hirado.hu, during the academy’s opening ceremony on Monday, Csaba Krasznay said there are news reports surfacing every day that detail cyber crime and hacking attempts around the world. He said that this only emphasizes the importance of cyber security and of having such an academy.

Krasznay states that the deeper conversations we have about cyber security the better, and this requires an academic, scientific background. He pointed out that the lack of IT and cyber security knowledge and experts means a huge problem in both Europe and Hungary.

NKE's cyber security academy is responsible for synchronizing the existing resources of each faculty, research facility and workshop, and to support cyber security research and experts.

Their goal is to improve IT infrastructure and establish a special laboratory for it. “The aim of the academy is to serve as a catalizator in the field of public service, police and defense,” Csaba Krasznay said.
