What is the D-seal?

Denmark’s new labelling program for IT security and responsible use of data.

The D-seal will create digital trust for customers & consumers and drive digital accountability in companies.

It is crucial that we as citizens and consumers have trust in the digital services we use every day. Today, it can be quite difficult to know whether a company has good IT security and handles our data in a responsible and ethical manner or not. This is what the D-seal is aiming to change.

The D‑seal is relevant to all types of business and is adapted to the individual company. The number of criteria that a company has to meet depends on the size of the company, its business model, use of data and IT, and its impact on humans.

The D-seal’s criteria are based upon several acknowledged frameworks from European and national councils, committees and task forces.

The Danish Industry Foundation is backing the initiative together with 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 is an independent private organization.
