Information security, one of the key factors for protection of the whole economy of each society has constantly being targeted by cyber-terrorism, unknown to any geographical or state boundaries.
Adequate and timely application of the latest IT solutions created for ensuring Information security, together with coherent Legislative regulations, can put an end to cyber-terrorism– this was the message of this year’s, sixths TeleGroup Infosec Conference on Information Security, held in Tesliću on Thursday, Nov. 24, 2016.
State of confidentiality, integrity and availability of data has been constantly attacked through cyber-terrorism on a daily basis, becoming at the same time a world-wide present and actual threat.
