The Danish Energy Authority has announced a successful cyber attack drill on 19 November, lasting eight hours. It involved cooperation by various authorities and organisations as well as the six critical civilian sectors, namely telecommunications, energy, finance, health, transport and maritime. The Centre for Cyber-Security worked intensively to prevent the dummy attack and limit damage. Ministry for Climate, Energy and Utilities Dan Jorgensen said that the exercise proves that concerted cybersecurity efforts can keep Denmark secure. The Energy Authority said the simulation was the first of its kind in the country.
