A national cyber security strategy Skr. 2016/17:213


There is a great need to develop cyber security in Sweden. This national cyber security strategy is an expression of the Government's overarching priorities and is intended to constitute a platform for Sweden's continued development work within the area.


The main aims of the strategy are to help to create the long-term conditions for all stakeholders in society to work effectively on cyber security, and raise the level of awareness and knowledge throughout society. By means of the strategy, the Government also wants to support the efforts and engagement that already exist in society for enhancing cyber security. The strategy thus encompasses the whole of society, that is to say central government authorities, municipalities and county councils, companies, organisations and private individuals.
