Recommended Posts

Sweden is setting up a national security center. This was decided on December 10th by the government to commission Försvarets radioanstalt, Försvars­makten, Myndig­heten för samhälls­skydd och beredskap and Säkerhets­polisen to establish a national cyber security center. The purpose is to strengthen Sweden's overall ability to prevent, detect and manage cyber threats.

The government writes that the cyber threats against Sweden and Swedish interests are extensive. With technology development and digitalization, the threats and vulnerabilities increase, which means that security needs to be strengthened. The national cyber security center will contribute to making Sweden safer by increasing the overall ability to meet cyber threats and effectively support both public and private actors. This will contribute to strengthening security in society as a whole, the government believes.

Quote

- By bringing together Sweden's cutting-edge expertise in the field, the national cyber security center will make Sweden more secure and strengthen security for Swedish interests. Socially important activities and sensitive or secret information must be protected from intrusion, sabotage and leaks. It is crucial for us to also be able to take advantage of the opportunities of digitalisation, says Minister of the Interior Mikael Damberg.

Within the framework of the cyber security center, the authorities shall:

  • Coordinate work to prevent, detect and manage cyber attacks and other IT incidents.
  • Provide advice and support regarding threats, vulnerabilities and risks.
  • Provide a national platform for collaboration and information exchange with private and public actors in the field of cyber security.

In total, the government estimates an investment of SEK 440 million in the cyber security center up to and including 2025.

  • 2021 - 50 million SEK
  • 2022 - 60 million SEK
  • 2023 - 60 million SEK
  • 2024 - 120 million SEK
  • 2025 - 150 million SEK

 

Quote

- With the establishment of the cyber security center, an important step is taken to improve our overall ability to protect Sweden and Swedish interests and reduce vulnerabilities. The government will work closely with the relevant authorities on the continued work, says Minister of Defense Peter Hultqvist.

      Nothing make my skin crawl as deceit and greed and Disney is pretty good at that. Their release of Disney plus in Sweden probably takes the cake however and I instantly cancelled my subscription when I realised that they are drip feeding old content, just to make me stay as a paying customer longer.
      As Disney plus finally arrived in Sweden I was happy to jump in to enjoy the Mandalorian and season 7 of the Clone Wars. I paid for the monthly subscription because like many other services they don't have enough content for me to remain a constant subscriber. Instead I cycle the services to get the most out of them.
      If you are unfamiliar with the Mandalorian, then you should know that it was released in November 2019 and season 1 was concluded in December 2019. So it is a 9 month old series with the season 2 releasing on October 30th. Even if content sometimes, for some weird reason, is realease differently in different parts of the world I was not expecting to see only 2 episodes available!

      Not only are they not releasing the full 8 episodes of the 9 month old Mandalorian series, they are releasing one episode each week. The same is true for Clone Wars and it is an obvious attempt to keep people subscribing to their service for at least 2 months. It's such a bad way to treat new customers that have waited almost a year for Disney plus to even be available.
      I see absolutely no reason to pay for old content only to get 1-2 episodes of old content. I am pretty sure we will not see season 2 of the Mandaorian anytime soon either.
      This is such a douchebag move from Disney and it pissed me off to the point where I will just skip their content, or pay for a month next year to get access to season 1 and 2 and then cancel again.
      That is a solid way to treat potential customers.
