The Prime Minister, the Minister of Public Security, the Minister of Justice and Immigration, the Minister of Defence and the Minister of Research and Higher Education - all took part in the launch of the strategy.

The new strategy is Norway's fourth cybe security strategy, and is intended to address the challenges that arise in conjunction with the rapid and far-reaching digitalisation of Norwegian society. The developments in relation to previous strategies are based on the need to reinforce public-private, civilian-military and international cooperation.

The list of measures, a part of the strategy, contains measures with a budget of around 1,6 billion NOK. The strategy also contains ten basic advice for all companies in Norway to follow to raise the cybersecurity level across the nation.

In preparing the strategy, particular emphasis has been put on applying an open and inclusive process so as to involve stakeholders from the public and private sector alike.
