The Centre for Cyber Security (CFSC) belonging to the Danish Defence Intelligence Service (DDIS or Forsvarets Efterretningstjeneste, FE in Danish) warns of the danger of potential upcoming cyber attacks that might impact Denmark in the context of the conflict in Ukraine.
Given the current situation happening in Ukraine, Danish companies are urged to boost their cyber resilience to be prepared to face a cyberattack, because, even if potential cyberattacks would not be directly directed at Denmark, they might target other countries, an issue that can later extend and impact Denmark too. In this case, the consequences would be damage to Danish IT systems triggering consequently operational and financial losses, as the Center for Cyber Security mentions.
The situation in Ukraine places demands on the cyber preparedness of Danish authorities and companies. CFCS does not expect that the current situation in Ukraine will lead to destructive cyber attacks directly targeting Denmark. However, as we have seen in the past, for example in the context of the Not-Petya attack in 2017, destructive cyberattacks targeting other countries may spread to Denmark. This can cause widespread damage to Danish IT systems, resulting in significant operational and financial losses.
