Cyber security – Information and IT security

The grave security situation in Europe increases the risk of cyberattacks, and most regulatory authorities are urging everyone to be especially alert to such eventualities.

KI’s security offices therefore ask all staff to be particularly vigilant. This means:

  • being alert when it comes to attacks, phishing, harmful code, password management, false links, attachments and websites
  • reporting functional and other anomalies to the IT system
  • being alert to activities that can be seen as attempts to gather information or affect KI’s activities
  • not using private devices for work-related tasks; includes use of private cloud services
  • installing security updates on your phone, computer and other devices as soon as possible
  • reporting incidents or suspicious events here.
