The Expert Publishing Group, with the merger of the news portals Security Magazín, RAILTARGET, and Deník Vektor, becomes the largest publishing house in the field of specialized expert media in the Czech Republic. This unification allows for enhanced collaboration among the individual editorial teams, enabling better connectivity across the segments of economy, defense, and railways, and ensuring higher-quality articles and analyses in these fields.

The uniqueness of the Expert Publishing Group's journalism is anchored in the journalistic personalities of the individual titles. These include Jakub Samek, Editor-in-Chief of Security Magazín; Alicia Randáková, Editor-in-Chief of RAILTARGET; and Pavel Kohout, Chairman of the Editorial Board of Deník Vektor. All have been active in their respective fields for many years, with their work being highly sought after and appreciated in the Czech market. The merged entities will continue to focus on intensive and collaborative work with industry associations and institutions. This includes expanded participation in fairs and conferences, not only in the Czech Republic but throughout Europe.

The publishing house also aims to strengthen its international presence. An English version of Security Magazín is set to launch, complementing the English version of RAILTARGET. Communication with pan-European institutions will be enhanced, and expansion into new markets, such as Poland, is planned. The collaboration of the editors from all three portals will also foster better utilization of modern technologies, including an emphasis on data journalism and expanded use of artificial intelligence.
