Abstract

Denmark is one of the most digitised countries in Europe. However, according to recent reports, IT security in Danish companies has not followed along. To shed light into the challenges that companies experience with implementing IT security, we conducted interviews with four employees from four different companies, asking about their IT security and their needs to become better protected. Our results show that the companies are lacking fundamental security protection and are in need of basic security help and raising awareness of cyber threats in the organisations. Based on our findings, we discuss directions for future steps in terms of addressing these issues.
