Northern Europe’s Leading Cybersecurity Center Opens in Stockholm

Northern Europe’s leading Cybersecurity Center opens its doors in central Stockholm, Sweden. Truesec is the initiator of the center that will deliver state-of-the-art capabilities to meet new and future cyber threats to society. The center is accessible to all societal actors, companies, and organizations and aims to be a platform for innovation, sharing knowledge, and collaboration for jointly increased capabilities in cyber threat detection and cyber defense capabilities. Microsoft and CrowdStrike are some of the significant partners of the Cybersecurity Center.

The new Cybersecurity Center will be the command center for hundreds of complex incident response operations carried out each year to help companies and organizations investigate, respond, and recover from severe cyber attacks.
At the center, the antagonists who threaten Swedish and global interests are tracked and monitored by Truesec’s foremost expertise that today includes more than 300 people in Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Germany, and the United States are engaged in the operation.

The Cybersecurity Center:

  • provides real-time insights into the threat against Sweden and other countries.
  • prevents more than 5,000 cyberattacks per year.
  • has full capacity to mitigate, detect and respond to attacks 24/7, 365 days a year.
  • supports over 500 organizations and partners by actively protecting critical infrastructure, digital values and assets.
  • employs over 300 cyberspecialists

Given the threat scenario that our societies are facing, the center provides us with the conditions needed to be the cyber partner that private businesses and the public sector need to protect their business, competitiveness and digital services against cybercrime, says Anna Averud, CEO of Truesec Group.

The center has an intelligence department that maps and monitors the actors posing a threat to society. There is also a monitoring center that protects hundreds of thousands of systems and computers in critical operations and other organizations around the clock. In addition to defensive capabilities, the center’s offensive capabilities can simulate realistic antagonistic attacks, identify vulnerabilities, and train organizations.

“The Cybersecurity Center is a private contribution to meet Sweden’s and other countries need for increased cyber capabilities given the geopolitical situation we are in. The war against Ukraine and geopolitical turbulence have drastically changed the threat landscape for our society and the number of cyberattacks is increasing. Amid this uncertainty, we prevent 17 data breaches every day and handle the most complex cyber incidents in Sweden and elsewhere. As a private player, we can be more energetic, and transparent and move faster than the state-owned national counterpart. Thus, we are an important complement to protect our societies.” says Marcus Murray, security expert and Founder of Truesec.
