Danish Cyber and Information Security Strategy 2022-2024
The Danish Government has adopted a new national strategy that constitutes the framework for cyber and information security in Denmark over the next three years. The overall aim of the strategy is to strengthen society’s resilience to cyber threats.
The Danish National Strategy for Cyber and Information Security 2022-24 will strengthen digital security and robustness throughout Danish society to keep up with developments in cyber threats. The strategy establishes several new security requirements for ministries and government agencies responsible for vital societal ICT systems and functions.
The demand for cyber and information security skills is high. However, public authorities and private companies alike find it difficult to recruit the right profiles for the tasks. Therefore, the new strategy launches a number of initiatives that focus on raising management commitment and competencies in the field of cyber and information security by means of education, training and new requirements. It is also a priority to build knowledge among residents, for example by strengthening Denmark’s national information portal on cyber and information security, sikkerdigital.dk.
The strategy will provide the Danish police with new tools to counteract cybercrime, which has been an increasing problem in recent years. There is also a focus on strengthening Denmark’s active role in international cooperation on cyber and information security.
