In the world we live in today, a world that is internet-connected, cyber security is becoming increasingly important. More and more information is uploaded and stored online, often information that is sensitive and should be kept out of the hands of the wrong people. Every day, Hackers, digital terrorists and other cyber criminals cause severe damage to individuals, businesses and governments, damage that produces significant costs. To fight this cybercrime, people from different segments, e.g. policy makers, business leaders and IT security specialists, should work together, both nationally as internationally, to develop effective measures to fight and manage these cyber threats.
