SMEs are the backbone of the Swedish economy but are also the most vulnerable to cyberattacks. The Sweden Secure Tech Hub aims to help SMEs of all sizes improve their cybersecurity posture, whether they are just getting started or looking to take their cybersecurity to the next level.

The hub will offer a variety of activities to help SMEs, including needs assessments, networking events, training, seminars, and technical, financial, and legal expert assistance. The goal is to help SMEs develop secure products and services, sharpen their competitiveness, and protect their data and systems from cyberattacks.

Karin Bengtsson, CEO of Kista Science City, highlights the importance of cybersecurity in the digital age:

“To succeed in digitization, it is important that companies have a good understanding of cybersecurity risks. We offer an opportunity for companies to increase their knowledge and ability to protect themselves from cyberattacks.”

Sweden ICT, the organization behind Sweden Secure Tech Hub, is a collaboration between six of Sweden’s leading science parks in tech and digitalization: Linköping Science Park, Lindholmen Science Park (Västsverige), Ideon Science Park (Lund), Kista Science City (Stockholm), Luleå Science Park, and Blue Science Park (Karlskrona). Together, we represent an ecosystem with over 2,400 companies and 59,000 employees.

Sweden Secure Tech Hub has been designated by the EU as a European Digital Innovation Hub (EDIH) and has been tasked with supporting and strengthening companies and society in their secure digitalization efforts.

The work is funded by the European Regional Development Fund, Tillväxtverket, and Region Blekinge, in collaboration with the participating partners.
