Czech Cyber Security Glossary

The members of AFCEA Cyber Security Working Group in co-operation with Czech cyber security experts published first official Czech Cyber Security Glossary. The first draft was presented during the international Cyber Security and Defence conference – ITTE 2011.

In occasion of the international conference TechNet Europe & ITTE 2012, AFCEA Czech Chapter and Police Academy of the Czech Republic published first official Czech Dictionary on Cyber Security under ISBN 978-80-7251-378-9. This issue was published under patronage of National Security Authority of the Czech Republic and new National Centre for Cyber Security. In July 2012 the first electronical PDF version was published under ISBN 978-80-7251-377-2.

In 2013 we extended and updated first version of the Glossary and created The second edition, which was published by AFCEA Czech Chapter and Police Academy of the Czech Republic under ISBN 978-80-7251-397-0.

In 2014 the Czech republic implemented new Cyber Security Law. As a reaction to new legislation in year 2015 we extended and updated the glossary and the authors in cooperation with AFCEA Czech Chapter and Police Academy of the Czech Republic in Prague published third edition under ISBN 978-80-7251-436-6.

The electronical version (v. 3.1 – 15.5.2015) is available here .


On 14th February 2014, on the occasion of the 21st anniversary of the DICTIONARY OF THE YEAR competition, organized by the Czech Union of Interpreters and Translators (JTP), the evaluation committee made up of professional translators and interpreters from the Czech Republic and Slovakia and other experts, awarded the electronic version of “Czech-English and English-Czech Cyber Glossary” the Jury Award for an electronic dictionary.
