Adrián Belánik has been the Executive Director of the DataCentre of Electronization of Territorial Self-Government of Slovakia (DEUS) since July 2014. He joined this position after long-term work at the Ministry of Finance of the Slovak Republic. From 2005 to 2013, he held the position of General Director of the Tax and Customs Section at the Ministry of Finance of the Slovak Republic, where he focused on important agendas such as tax reform, the introduction of the euro and consolidation of public finances. Under his leadership, the Financial Statements Project was awarded 3rd place in the New Services category and was awarded at the International ITAPA Conference 2014. With the launch of the Registry, Slovakia became the second country in the world to make the company's financial data Open Data Set. Under the leadership of DEUS, the Data Center of Municipalities and Cities project was implemented under his leadership, through which a cross-departmental information system for self-government under the known name DCOM was built. This solution is also confirmed by the EuroCloud award at the international level in the category Best cloud service for the vertical market. DCOM is currently used by more than 70% of municipalities and towns in Slovakia.
Electronic communication of a citizen and an institution in the environment of an information system today is not possible without user authentication as well as authorization of electronic documents. Both the state and the private sector are looking for ways to make communication accessible and simpler without compromising the security of the services provided, saving time and money on the part of both the organization and the citizen. The mID solution responds to this situation.
Citizens and businesses will be able to sign up for a large part of eGov services and sign submissions using a smartphone. This eliminates common problems with installing and setting up software for eID (cards). Access to eGov services will be simplified, accelerated and will attract a significantly higher number of citizens and entrepreneurs to electronic communication with the state. From the beginning, MobileID has been thinking about its use by the commercial sector. With the help of a state-guaranteed identity in a mobile and an open interface, a citizen or entrepreneur will be able to, for example, open accounts or change telecommunications operator. No need for a physical visit to the branch.
The current situation associated with the COVID 19 pandemic intensifies the demand for contactless services accessible to citizens from the comfort of home. The ability to register a mobile identity "from the living room" even without an ID card with a chip (ie without installing a reader on a computer) is a solution that eliminates the risk of virus transmission when activating identity (people do not have to go to any office). Fully self-service onboarding is also a more cost-effective form of mobile identity registration than, for example, on-site service (IOM) onboarding.
The municipality also provides modern solutions and technologies. You can learn more about how it is ready to deliver modern services in this presentation.
