Presentation slides: Media:AFSec20131030-NSR-Beitland.pdf
ABSTRACT: Information security is one of three priority areas for NSR (Næringslivets Sikkerhetsråd). The increased threat, an impaired security state, and lack of awareness about information security, all lead to risks that urgently need the attention of CEOs and boards. It is a priority goal for NSR to strengthen businesses' ability to manage those risks, and to handle information security holistically and systematically in their own organizations. Collaboration between business and government to counter security threats, and with the education sector to produce IT experts with strong security skills is the key to creating a robust national IT infrastructure for our growing information economy.
