"cyber warfare is becoming increasingly a reality in the world, and countries prepare themselves for defense against cyber attacks. In Denmark, the government wants to initiate attempts with the cybervärnplikt from the end of the year."
"the New forms of warfare, and our increased use of digital communications lies behind the proposal from the Danish defense minister Claus Hjort Frederiksen (liberal Party) to allow 30 people at a time, to do military service in cyber security."
"The conscripts will undergo four-months long military service. Thereafter, according to the plans eight months of special training in cyber security, and tactical communication. Only those who have good skills in the IT field should come into question, according to the secretary of defense."
"the Proposal meets the broad political backing and the secretary of defense Bjørn Bisserup believe that the proposal will strengthen Denmark's security in the long term."
"– It is clear that cyberhoten is significant. There are also military terms. The purpose of the conscripts is to build capacity both to the delight of the defense but also for society in general, " says Bisserup."
"– New inductees provides us with an increase in recruitment, " continues the secretary of defense."
