The increasing dependence of society on computer technology is one of the major challenges in terms of providing security that (not only) European countries face. Considering the global nature of cyberspace and internationalization of related threats, the measures taken to ensure coexistence with this digital domain are not only a matter of individual countries, but also supranational structures whose members come from their own development and various experiences within political and legislative realities. The following text, which was created under the auspices of the Slovak Security Policy Institute (SSPI) in collaboration with other partners, including the editorial staff of European Security Journal, is focused on the Visegrad Group which is a leading platform usable for the intensification of international cooperation from the perspective of the Czech Republic. After the initial characterization of "cyber culture" in Hungary, Poland, Slovak and Czech Republic, the study proceeds with the evaluation of key sectors related to cyberspace: the legislative sector, the technological, personnel and institutional support, the access to critical infrastructures and the sector of education and research. The final part presents recommendations on how to strengthen the areas assessed as the most problematic and how to face current and future cyber threats from the position of the V4 members more efficiently.
