Aarhus Takes the Lead in Cyber and Information Security

Aarhus Municipality, like all other public authorities and businesses/organizations, faces an increased threat when it comes to cybersecurity. Denmark is one of the world's leading nations in terms of digitization, a crucial driving force for the development of our society. However, with a high degree of digitization comes an increased vulnerability to criminals and hostile nations seeking to exploit weaknesses in our digital society.

A Strong Position in Cybersecurity

Aarhus holds a strong position in the realm of cyber and information security. The Department of Computer Science at Aarhus University ranks in the top three globally in the field of cryptography. The Alexandra Institute in Aarhus advises businesses across Denmark on innovative uses of IT security technologies. Furthermore, we have several robust IT security and blockchain companies, many of which have emerged from the academic environment in Aarhus, working on high-level IT security models.
