Focus on Cyber Security

Published: 20 April 2018

Digitization means great opportunities – but also threats and risks to companies, authorities and organizations. The interest was great for the seminar, arranged by Luleå Municipality and Luleå University of Technology, on how to protect yourselves against digital threats.

– It is important to raise awareness about cyber security in order to secure our democratic society, key societal functions, critical infrastructure, industrial secrets and citizens' integrity. To achieve this, cooperation in research, development and competence management are central. Today's seminar is a first step, says Luleå University of Technology’s Vice-Chancellor Birgitta Bergvall-Kåreborn.

The seminar ”Cyber Security – How does Sweden manage the current war?” was held at Luleå University of Technology’s campus last Friday. Among the speakers were Nils Svartz from the Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency, Dag Hartelius, Director General at the National Defence Radio Establishment, Ellen Grev, head of cyber security at Saab, and Luleå University’s researcher John Lindström.
