A government proposal we welcome
The Swedish government wants to tighten protection against espionage and tampering. A new bill means that private companies will also be covered by the new Security Protection Act.
Advenica welcomes the government's proposal to expand society's requirements to include private businesses. This hole in the security net has become increasingly more troublesome over time.
In connection with our round table discussions with the Home Secretary and the Minister for Innovation, we suggested that:
"Society's cybersecurity requirements should be governed by the nature of the business and not by its main character."
There is a great need for improvement in many sectors. Basic protection and understanding of information security must be a natural part of all types of businesses and institutions.
If you are just beginning to work with security a good start may be to make a self-assessment using the Swedish IT Security Index to get an understanding of the current situation.
