"A new law will enter in force, which will reduce the safety deficiencies uncovered in Swedish government authorities, including the Swedish transport agency."
"the Community adapts to meet a different situation," says Fredrik Agemark at the Fbi."
"It is about strengthening the protection of critical functions and sensitive information."
"in Order to increase preparedness against attack, or that the information falls into the wrong hands, the riksdag has passed a new law, which takes effect on Monday. The updated so-called Swedish security protection act imposes higher requirements on the safety performance of departments and other operations with critical missions."
"Different forms of security."
"It can be about physical security, perimeter protection in the form of locks and doors, but also on the protection of information that is important for Sweden's security."
"– Security protection, and include staff security, information security and physical security. When it comes to information security is not just about the protection of security-sensitive data, but also to important public information is available and is real, and what is connected with the digitalisation we have seen in the last few years, " says Fredrik Agemark, head of security at the Fbi."
" We have a much higher degree of liberalisation in the day, which makes many of the skyddsvärdena not owned by the state anymore. With this law, we will better be able to protect the important activities of private operators, " he says."
"Säkerhetsskyddsarbetet has received increasing attention in recent years – or perhaps rather the gaps in it. Nearly two years ago forced two ministers to resign after revelations about the large holes in the transport agency's it security. Foreign companies, that have not been security-cleared, had access to sensitive information, including employees, police officers with a protected identity."
"the Same pattern reappeared in the exposure of the Swedish national Grid earlier this year. The authority had given an american company commissioned to perform an update of a system connected to the Swedish electricity supply. Not this time had the foreign staff undergone any security clearance."
" We have seen a lot of flaws, but it gets better. The skills look very different and the activities that are used to manage the privacy is generally better, " says Fredrik Agemark."
"Rebuild the defence."
"He thinks at the same time, not that it is strange that the security may not be the place in the many activities that it should. The dismantling of the defence forces which has been going on since the end of the cold war has made the security issue less of a priority. But the slimmed down regain now resources, " says Fredrik Agemark."
"– the Government has resumed totalförsvarsplaneringen because of the changing omvärldsläget."
"The new Swedish security protection act differs from the old in a number of respects. It makes clear, among other things, that the responsibility to protect security-sensitive activities and information not just for the agencies. Several actors with critical functions or who handle sensitive information are in day business, which is now also in the scope of national security protection."
"the Activities covered by the act must make a so-called säkerhetsskyddsanalys. In the will of the potential threats identified, but also what is to be protected. According to the analysis conclusions to premises säkerhetsanpassas, information is protected and staff säkerhetsprövas."
"the Fbi expects that the law will mean significantly more so-called registerkontroller, which is part of the security screening of new employees. Staff on several activities will also be trained on the law of the Fbi."
"Along with several supervisors, then Säpos task to ensure that legislation is complied with."
