Our Mission

The topic of cyber security is still underestimated, and therefore the mission of the Guardians is to raise awareness of cybercrime issues and their impact on the population. We consider the education of young but also experienced experts in the field of IT and cyber security as one of the ways to increase not only awareness of the topic and possible threatments, but also the qualification of our experts.
