PA Consulting Group has had a byline published in Børsen discussing how Danish companies can protect their assets from hackers and cybercrime.
Recently, the Danes rejected adopting EU rules on cross-border policing in a referendum, which means that Denmark remains exempt from large parts of the EU's criminal justice and home affairs system. As a result, Denmark risks losing access to Europol, Europe's crime and intelligence-sharing agency. According to Martin, this poses a serious risk when it comes to fighting cybercrime across European borders. Companies therefore need to upgrade their protection from hackers by improving their general security procedures and to understand the mindset of a hacker.
PA refers to companies such as 7safe that help organisations to develop, maintain and grow their cyber security and information investigation capabilities. This includes penetration testing, enabling companies to understand how hackers operate and then use this knowledge to protect their assets.
“Organisations do not understand the severity of the threat we are facing – they do not grasp the scale of threats and attacks that organisations are exposed to every day,” says PA.
