Abstract [en]

Internet and information technology today has a rather obvious role in the activities of companies and organizations. All cash transactions within and between companies is digitized, communication within the company is done via e-mail, sales and marketing is done largely with marketing and ads on the Internet. This has resulted in economic benefits for companies and organizations, and facilitated the work for them. However, this has also led to new threats have emerged. Companies and organizations is well aware that there are numerous threats that comes with using the Internet and Information Technologies but exactly what those threats are for a mid-sized company in Sweden is not clarified anywhere. New reports made annually by various companies and government agencies around the world but no one puts a medium-sized Swedish business in focus. In this study several reports, made by different companies and government agencies are compared and compiled, too try too make an overview over the threats against a mid-sized company in Sweden. Together with interviews done with key people in the field of IT-security this study identifies the threats, draws conclusions of how to prevent them and also try to take a look into the future to see what threats a mid-sized company or organization can expect in just a matter of years. In the study we notice how all of the IT threats are increasing and that the digital crime are becoming more organized, that some of the key protections for a company is staff training and standard technical solutions such as antivirus software and firewalls. In the future operating systems will no longer be the target for intrusion, but instead web application be the major vulnerabilities. This essay is written in Swedish.
