Danish intelligence service report spotlights biggest threats to Denmark

The Danish defence intelligence service Forsvarets Efterretningstjeneste (FE) has presented its risk assessment, revealing what the agency considers the main threats to Denmark

The report puts cyber threats in first place, even above terrorism and Russia, as presenting a danger to Denmark. The threat from Russia and terrorism remains high, however, and are both still considered high risk areas. Danish companies and ministries were hit by hackers several times in 2017. The biggest attack hit Mærsk, where several systems were hacked and shut down, costing the company millions. In addition to the attack on Maersk, nearly every Danish ministry is exposed to daily cyber-attacks. FE also said that the Armed Forces mail system was hacked in 2016.
