What is the most important thing you do at work?
To develop and disseminate knowledge so that people and leaders in Kardemommeby can make good decisions related to the use of IT as a tool.

What do you focus on in your technology?
I am in many ways a strategic and tactical advisor who helps people build security capabilities to fight threats.

Why is it exciting?
Because it's about our digital future and about being able to reap the benefits of modern IT, without having to take all the negative sides.

What do you think are the most interesting controversies?
Everyone wants to use data, but very few are interested in talking about how excessive use of data can take us as a society. And threat denial, where there are an incredible number of people who try to pretend that the world is a much kinder place to not think about it.

Your own relevant projects last year?
Now I will help PwC build a team that in many ways will be an "extended CAC for hire".

Your other favorite examples of your technology internationally and nationally?
Internationally, it is good to see that the authorities in the UK, via the GCHQ front NCSC, issue a lot of good and concrete advice on security. Nationally, I think it is very positive that Telenor has decided to get on the field for safety, and I am impressed with Mnemonic.

What do you think is relevant knowledge for the future?
Use of data, machine learning and artificial intelligence. In addition to strong technology understanding coupled with good understanding of human cognitive function. Philosophy and knowledge of how the freedom of thought and democracy work is also important.

A favorite future quote?
To inform is to influence.

Main points from our conversation?
The threat picture is escalating. Enormous data capture combined with ML / AI and cynical actors is a threat to the individual's autonomy and democratic processes. None of this is sustainable, and therefore we must work to understand and for sustainable digitization.
