Thanks in part to the Faculty of Law of MU, Czech Republic is a world leader in cybersecurity legislation
Thanks to the Institute of Law and Technology, which focuses on the long-term research of the legal aspects of cybersecurity and cybercrime, the Faculty of Law was one of the first institutions in the Czech Republic to introduce comprehensive legislation in this area.
The Institute of Law and Technology has no competition in the Czech Republic
We cooperate with top institutions in Germany, Hungary, Belgium, Estonia, Australia and Israel while also participating in the activities of the Czech CyberCrime Centre of Excellence (C4E) thanks to an interdisciplinary collaboration with the MU Institute of Computer Science.
We have been part of the debate on legal regulations in this area from the very beginning, ever since we helped draft the first Czech cybersecurity legislation in 2011. We expect to continue working on the Cyber Security Act indefinitely.
We rely on an in-house knowledge base and international experience
Our research is primarily based on Masaryk University's own expertise. Our doctoral students and other researchers participate in prestigious grants and internships including e.g. FP7 SMART, FP7 RESPECT, MINERVA (Israel) and ARC (Australia).
We collaborate with police and army forces
Our partners also include the National Security Authority, intelligence services and private entities. Thanks to the activities of the Institute of Law and Technology, MU is the only Czech university to collaborate with all of the country's security forces. Their representatives are even present on the Cybersecurity and Cybercrime Expert Board of Masaryk University.
Cybersecurity is a highly topical issue and associated legal regulations are a necessary ingredient in dealing with security matters at the national and international level.
