Cyber security

In a time of societal digitalisation, the need for cyber security is pivotal. The threat against information and systems locally and in cyberspace is also on the rise.

Any breach of cyber security such as hacker, DDoS and phishing attacks infringes rights, reduces productivity and is damaging to the trust between business partners, customers and citizens. Legislation, for instance the data protection law rules, the NIS Directive and sector-specific rules for example the rules applying to the financial sector, also stipulates security requirements. That is why cyber security is crucial for the activities, integrity and success of both private enterprises and public authorities, and for Danish national security. In addition, it will often be a positive business case to make certain that security measures are in place.
