Denmark to ramp up cyber security efforts: defence minister

Denmark intends to boost efforts to prevent cyber-attacks, Defence Minister Claus Hjort Frederiksen said on the side-lines of a conference in Copenhagen

The government would like to expand an early warning system with sensors that detects when Danish companies or authorities are under attack from, for example, malware. The government also wants to increase the preventive capacity at the Danish centre for cyber security to increase its ability to better catch and inform about imminent cyber threats. “If you can undermine our democratic nations by hacking the energy systems or the communication systems or the financial systems it will undermine our own people’s belief in our societies’ ability to protect them,” the Minister warned.
