Swedish PTS analyses risks to telecoms sector

Friday 14 November 2014 | 13:23 CET | News
The Swedish postal and telecoms regulator PTS has carried out a risk and vulnerability analysis. It said both sectors face threats but that security generally is high. The biggest threat to the electronic communications sector is power cuts, for example, through storm damage. The national grid has several hours' back-up capacity, which is sufficient for most of the electricity outages that occur in Sweden.
