Elmatica announces that CEO, Didrik Bech, is an approved member of the Swedish Cyber Defense and Export Control groups.
“We are pleased that Didrik Bech is willing to contribute time and effort to the collective work of the groups,” says Robert Limmegård, secretary general at SOFF.
The amount of cyberattacks on companies are rising, and the jungle of defense regulations pushes the need for Compliance Control in front. This has led to an increased focus in the defense industry to learn more about Cyber Security and Export Control.
“We are very pleased that Elmatica has joined both our Cyber Defense Group and our Export Control Group. The engagement from our member companies are crucial for the development and enhancement of the market. We are pleased that Didrik is willing to contribute time and effort to the collective work of the groups,” says Limmegård.
Certified for FAR, DFARS and ITAR—starting to work on CMMC
Last year Bech was certified in FAR, DFARS, ITAR, Advanced ITAR and Cyber Security by the Federal Publications Seminars (FPS) in Washington, presented at several defense seminars in the Nordics and has started working on implementing the new CMMC regulations.
“SOFF is establishing a valuable and important arena for the Swedish Defense Industry to meet, learn and discuss. We appreciate the effort they put into further enlightening the field of Cyber Security and Export Control, and are honored to be able to share our knowledge and experience," says Bech.
The Cyber domain is in a continually evolving landscape
“The industry is set on meeting new challenges and as an association, the knowledge of the companies is an important contribution to how we as an association can promote the best policies, practices, and innovation needed to ensure that an effective market supports our Armed Forces,” says Limmegård.
Limmegård specifies that the work carried out within the fields of cyber defense and export control are two of the most important groups.
“Especially with new national and European cybersecurity legislation and a new set of cybersecurity standards developed by the US Department of Defense (DoD), the cyber domain is in a continually evolving cyber landscape,” Limmegård finishes.
