TCCA welcomes Czech Republic’s National Agency for Communication and Information Technology
Prague, Czech Republic, 02 August 2017: The National Agency for Communication and Information Technology (NAKIT) has announced its membership of TCCA, the global representative organisation for critical communications.

“With its complete view of the needs of a nation in terms of critical ICT, NAKIT will bring extremely valuable knowledge and perspective to the work of TCCA. We look forward to working with NAKIT and extend a warm welcome on behalf of all TCCA members around the world,” said Mladen Vratonjić, TCCA Chair of the Board.
