9 viktige råd om digitale trusler og informasjonssikkerhet

Næringsliv og offentlig forvaltning preges nå av økende digitalisering. Det fører til at virksomhetene blir mer effektive og lønnsomme, men også til en økende fare for at virksomheter kan settes ut av spill eller lide betydelige tap.

Også norske virksomheter er i økende grad utsatt for digitale angrep. Eksportindustrien er særlig utsatt - spesielt teknologibedriftene. Digital industrispionasje er ofte billigere og langt mer effektiv enn tradisjonelle metoder. Det drives derfor…

GODSAVTALE SKAL FLYTTE 300.000 TRAILERE BORT FRA VEIEN

De fire borgerlige partiene er enige om tiltak som skal flytte 30 prosent av godstransporten fra vei til sjø og bane innen 2030. Det tilsvarer 300.000 vogntog.
