A changed warfare and our increased use of digital communication has led to that the ministry of Defence will introduce cyberværnepligt as a pilot.
the 30 people expected to be in the scheme, as defence minister Claus Hjort Frederiksen (V) expect, will enter into force from the new year.
- We have seen how you have been able to paralyze the infrastructure that the russians could cripple the supply of electricity, and we have seen that you have been able to cripple the gps system, so navigation is difficult.
- It grabs on all the time, and the Defense is under daily attack from foreign powers, which will check and spy in our systems, he says.
Traditionally, there has been talk about the three types of war: land, sea and in the air. After the international defence alliance Nato in 2016, acknowledged cyberområdet as the fourth krigsdomæne, it also requires skilled military personnel with skills in it, mean the minister.
The new area for conscripts is because there are a few with good it skills in the ministry of Defence as well as in society in general.
the Details are not yet fully in place. However, the minister expects that the new training will require four months of basic military training and eight months of special training in the field of cyber security and it.
Only people who already have good skills in it, is expected to be busy, says Claus Hjort Frederiksen.
- It is clear that one must be a skilled young person within the area. It is not an it course.
Even though the military superstructure has not yet been created, the minister does not doubt that it will be introduced and will be sought after.
- This is going to be something, and I'm pretty sure that this is going to be something permanent.
cyber Attacks, war on the net, hacking and meningspåvirkningskampagner is unfortunately not something that goes away. It has become the new normalsituation, and it must the Defense be able to handle, says Claus Hjort Frederiksen.
