A publication from the Swedish Security & Defence Industry Association

Sweden needs to face destabilizing acts aimed at influencing Sweden
politically, economically and militarily. Protection of society’s functionality
falls to a large number of players who together constitute a security
structure that increases the ability to defend society.

To develop defence technology – regardless of whether it’s cyber or air
defence – is considerably more difficult than to harm society. In order to
protect and defend our society, knowledge of how new technology is developed
and managed is nevertheless necessary. It requires that we understand
the weaknesses and strengths of systems in order to develop
the technology that counteracts the same. In so doing, the companies
contribute to, and become an integrated part of maintaining Sweden’s
operational capability in both the short and long-term.
