Enterprises should also guard against mobilaflytning

Enterprises can according to DI be subjected to espionage from competitors if they are carrying a mobile to the meetings.

Members of The Foreign policy Board has since after the summer holidays was forbidden to bring mobile phones and other electronic equipment for their meetings in the Danish Parliament for fear of interception from foreign powers.

the Danish companies should consider doing the same in order to guard against hacker attacks, espionage and intercepts of the meetings or on business trips, where mobile phones and other electronic equipment allowed in the room.

It takes Christian Hannibal, who is digitaliseringspolitisk commander in the Danish Industry.

- Businesses must generally consider what their risk profile is, and whether they are at great risk for attack, if they hold data or knowledge, which can be attractive to unauthorized users.

- Why should they take their precautions in their policies to take electronics to the crucial meetings.

- They should also consider whether their cell phones and electronics are protected from hacker attacks or tapping, when employees are traveling with the work, says Christian Hannibal.

It is information from the secret service, which has got the Parliament to respond to possible cyber attacks.

Cybertruslen is assessed as "very high" according to the Defence Intelligence service.

When it comes to cyber security in enterprises, it is especially companies in the pharmaceutical and defense industry, which must take their own precautions, believe Christian Hannibal.

- They can be attractive targets for bugging and espionage from the intruder, because they can hold knowledge and data, as intruders or competitors may be interested in getting hold of.

But fortunately, many Danish companies are generally aware that they must secure themselves against the spying, points to the Christian Hannibal.

- There is a great demand of more knowledge on the prevention against espionage and cyber attacks, and how you relate to it as a business.

And then there are fortunately many companies who can advise other companies. We also guide yourself on the.

But the most important thing is to first find out how exposed you are as a company, and then you should put its security level then, says Christian Hannibal.
