Sweden is one of the world’s leading countries when it comes to digital skills. When it comes to cybersecurity, however, the ranking is modest. There is a disconnect between the pace of digitization of Swedish society and cybersecurity. Especially SMEs – which account for 60% of Swedish business turnover – and (small) organizations in the public sector have fallen behind and need better conditions to digitize their activities in a secure way.
In the EU’s Digital Economy and Society Index, which measures both the digital skills and knowledge of the population and the level of digital accessibility and connectivity, Sweden is in the top three , with Denmark and Finland. The Network Readiness Index, which ranks global economies by digital maturity, places Sweden second. But when it comes to cybersecurity, the situation is different: according to the Global Cybersecurity Index, Sweden ranks 26th in the world. Even within Europe, Sweden ranks only 15th.
Moreover, the concept of security acquires a new urgency at a time of intense geopolitical turmoil. Sweden is an attractive target for foreign powers and the threat will only increase and the targets are not just military. Commercial activities, technological development and research are also targeted. The overall need for cybersecurity knowledge, skills and implementation is therefore enormous. On May 24, we will detail what this means for opportunities in the Swedish market for Dutch cyber experts.
