On 3 December 2009 Mrs. Tsveta Markova, the Chairperson of the State Commission on Information Security made a public lecture before students in the second course in ‘Information Security’ specialty of the State University of Library Studies and Information. The subject of the lecture was ‘The role and the place of the State Commission on Information Security among the security structures of the Republic of Bulgaria. Mrs. Markova introduced to the students the basic principles and requirements of NATO and EU to which the State Commission on Information Security has to respond and the results of her visit in Brussels during the previous week.

The students expressed great interest. Many questions were asked and they can be synthesized to the following three:

First: Should the State Commission on Information Security be closed down by being infused to the State Agency ‘National Security’, what is the purpose of this ‘enterprise’ and who are the leading forces for its realization?

Second: What is the role of the human factor in the protection of classified information?

Third: Until when information will be exchanged on paper copy?

Before answering the questions, Professor Stoyan Denchev, rector of the State University of Library Studies and Information, asked the students to try to figure the answers by themselves.

The students answered categorically and in a well-grounded manner to their own questions by making the natural conclusion that the State Commission on Information Security is a necessary authority for the fulfillment of the requirements and the obligations of our state as a member of NATO and the European system for security.

Mrs. Markova confirmed the conclusions made by the students, answered in a comprehensive manner to all the questions and invited the students to visit the State Commission on Information Security.
