A united Denmark supports the D-seal!
The D-seal is founded by The Confederation of Danish Industry, The Danish Chamber of Commerce, SMEdenmark and The Danish Consumer Council.
The D-seal is supported by the Danish Business Authority and financed by the Danish Industry Foundation.
“Our goal with the seal is to improve safety, create transparency and ensure trust to the individual.”
Mette Raun Fjordside
Vice President, the Danish Consumer Council
“The initiative will help companies and at the same time create greater demand for digital responsibility. Trust in data can become an important competitive advantage for Denmark.”
Lars Sandahl Sørensen
CEO, The Confederation of Danish Industries
“This initiative will promote cyber security as a practical and tangible endeavor no matter the size of a company, starting point or prerequisites.”
CEO, the Danish Chamber of Commerce
“The idea behind this new labelling scheme is to make it easier for consumers to actively choose companies with a responsible behaviour in terms of data ethics. At the same time a label such as this will make it more appealing for companies to up their game in terms of IT-security and responsible data use as it will become a parameter on which companies can market themselves.”
Danish Minister for Industry, Business and Financial Affairs
“We expect that the initiative will make it easier for companies – not at least small and medium-sized ones – to ensure high IT and data security and make it easier to document the high level of security to customers and the outside world.”
“The cybersecurity and data seal will not only provide better insights towards who is working seriously and focused with it-security and data handling. It will be a lever for the multitude of companies who would like to increase their knowledge about cybersecurity but is lacking necessary guidelines and help to get started and reach their goal.”
Tim Sloth Jørgensen
Chief of the Danish Industry Foundation Cyber program
