Swedish armed forces to train soldiers in cyberdefence, with possible complementary digital home guard

Friday 18 January 2019 | 11:58 CET | News
Swedish terrestrial radio and television broadcasting transmission company Teracom said a digital home guard could be set up in Sweden to tackle rising cyberthreats, complementing new Armed Forces efforts. In a blog, head of security and communication Johan Petersson said that in 2019, the ground will be laid to provide basic training for 'IT soldiers' within the Armed Forces. Under these plans, the first recruits would join in 2020 for eleven months of training, although Petersson said no details are available yet.
