In Slovenia, the ICT sector is well developed and above-average results have been achieved also the field of public services. The State is investing in the digitalisation of society and business, digital growth, education for a digital society, while promoting the innovative and intensive use of ICT and the internet in all fields of development. With the finalisation of broadband infrastructure by 2020, nearly all households will have access to a modern communication infrastructure.

We have undertaken to accelerate the development of the digital society and thus exploit the development opportunities of ICT and the internet with a view to becoming an advanced digital society and a reference environment for innovative approaches to the use of digital technologies. We will invest in the digitalisation of society and entrepreneurship, digital growth and education for a digital society, while promoting the innovative and intensive use of ICT and the internet in all fields of development. 

Our strategic documents for an information society envisage measures aimed at eliminating the greatest development gaps in order to accelerate the development of digital entrepreneurship, digital infrastructure, and an inclusive information society, increase the competitiveness of the ICT industry, achieve overall digitalisation, construct broadband infrastructure, and improve cybersecurity.

Digital equality

We have formulated a strategic plan for co-financing the construction of broadband infrastructure from public funds. Our goal is by 2020 to provide broadband internet access with data rates of at least 100 Mb/s to 96% of households and at least 30 Mb/s to remaining households. By co-financing the construction of broadband infrastructure in areas where there is no market interest we will provide people in the rural area with access to modern communication infrastructure and high-speed access to the internet. People living in rural areas will be provided with equal opportunities for inclusion in the modern digital society, which will establish the conditions for the revival of rural regions and balanced development.

Cybersecurity

Slovenia also faces complex security challenges, as in a modern society every area depends on information and communication systems. The development of digitalisation will make this dependency even greater. System interconnectivity means that the vulnerability of one system may affect the functioning of others. The Cybersecurity Strategy thus determines measures for setting up a comprehensive national system to provide a high level of information security. The area of information security has been regulated systemically with the appointment of a competent national body for information security, a national cybersecurity response centre and a response centre for addressing incidents concerning the information systems of state administration and its bodies.

We will also actively support research and development in information security and thus help reduce the gap between the rising needs for experts in this field and their current availability.
