Muninn & NNIT have won a tender to provide AI-based cyber security to protect the entire Danish public healthcare sector covering 142,000 employees and over 650,000 devices to begin with and set to rise over the years to more than twice that size.

In a partnership with NNIT, Muninn will be delivering a solution to support the analysis and monitoring of network data for anomalies across the entire public healthcare sector, starting with the five regions and progressing to as many actors as possible, including government agencies, municipalities, and general practitioners. 

“The threat from cyber criminals is more present than ever and protecting the systems and data in the public health care sector is a crucial part of the Danish national cyber defense strategy. Therefore, we are extremely proud to have been selected to protect the Danish public healthcare sector with our cyber security technology.”

Specifically, Muninn will be supplying appliance boxes with cyber AI detection software to monitor and detect anomalies in network data. NNIT will be establishing a data analysis center to process intel, before forwarding any suspicious activity to the Danish Health Data Authority’s own security operations center for evaluation of risk and possible counter defense initiatives.

This new government contract is an initiative and investment emerging from the Danish Government’s new national strategy for cyber and information security, which has the robust protection of Danish critical infrastructure as its first order. Besides the healthcare sector, other critical infrastructure sectors labelled are Telecom, Financial, Energy &Utility-, Transportation, Shipping. 

“We are proud of the trust in our team and cyber AI solution. This contract cements our strong position in Denmark. We look forward to working with both NNIT and the health authorities to protect this critical infrastructure”
