Sweden is now entirely dependent on IT, while society is being subjected to an increasing number of cyberattacks, both in the private and the public sector. Digitalization also carries with it many new possibilities to develop our society, which are not used in full. One example is cloud services.
An explanation behind companies and authorities not making full use of the possibilities is that they feel it is hard to work proactively with digital security when technical development is moving increasingly fast. It is also a challenge to adapt operations to the laws and regulations that follow in the tracks of digitalization.
To become truly great at cybersecurity requires many approaches and experiences. These can be found in the interface between IT, law, and business. Security is also a strategic matter which must involve the board and corporate management to future-proof the organization. Only then can the organization make full use of the possibilities, while we all jointly contribute to a safer digital society.
