      Organized by ITU
      Cybersecurity is a growing issue of digital society, and it is crucial for all kinds of the organisations to ensure that their security and privacy practices are sufficient to protect against common threats. Particularly important is addressing the socio-technical challenges and human factors, ensuring that both the management and the employees can contribute their part to protection against cyber threats. The session will focus on socio-technical challenges of cybersecurity in tech companies, following the report “Assessment of Cybersecurity in Denmark” on the study conducted by ITU and SDU (see https://ascd.dk/results/report.pdf). The session will consist of presenting the findings from the report and discussing such issues of implementing cybersecurity as lack of competences, lack of resources and lack of general security culture that results in under-prioritising cybersecurity and in the perception of cybersecurity as “someone else’s responsibility”.
