Information security now!

Similarly, the link between staff awareness and the level of information security in an organisation has been recognised. Of course, challenges and concerns still exist. Protection against cyber crime and information security vulnerabilities will not become any easier.


The information security forecasts for 2020 are based on a joint assessment made by the National Cyber Security Centre and our cooperation networks. They are part of our Information Security in 2019 review, which will be published in February.
