Denmark is far down when comparing the countries’ cyber security

Lately Global Cybersecurity Index, which is prepared every year by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), Denmark is in a dull 32nd place when measuring the countries’ cyber security – just after Kazakhstan.

A location that worries both the Danish Chamber of Commerce and the IT industry.

“In terms of security, we are just behind countries like Kazakhstan, which is far from good enough for a digitalised country like Denmark,” says Martin Jensen Buch, chief consultant in the IT industry, and continues: “It is especially around government cooperation that we lag. afterwards, so it is an area where we clearly need to get better across the public sector and the private sector. ”

The ITU goes in and measures 20 different security indicators, after which a total cyber security score is calculated for each country. And it is especially in the area of ​​cooperation that Denmark is lagging behind.

In order for Denmark to move further up the ranking of countries with a high level of cyber security, there is therefore a need for significant improvements within cooperation.

Untitled 10“We have a good dialogue with the Danish authorities and also have a feeling that the authorities are good at talking to each other,” adds Christian von Stamm Jonasson, chief consultant at Dansk Erhverv. “But it is also a large area, and due to the sector responsibility principle, there are many different authorities, which makes it necessary to use extra effort to gather the many efforts that are scattered around the authorities.

The Danish Chamber of Commerce and the IT industry support a strengthened public-private partnership on cyber security, as it is important to involve both groups in a public-private partnership to strengthen cyber security in Denmark.

“We bring together CISOs and managers with responsibility for IT security in a network where we share knowledge about threats and effective security. This is also where we get input for the Danish Chamber of Commerce’s work with cyber policy “, says Christian von Stamm and is followed up by Martin Jensen Buch, who says that” We have some of the leading IT experts sitting among Danish IT security companies. They are a huge resource due to their vast knowledge and experience, and therefore also important to get in play to strengthen our common cyber defense. ”
