In the future, Denmark - and the entire world - will need more IT professionals. In line with the technological development a greater need for experts in IT security will arise and we will need experts to  protect us against new kinds of cyber crime.

Ken Friis Larsen says:

- It is important to Danish society to educate IT talents who can challenge increasing IT crime and understand the new forms of attacks from cyberspace.

The campaign 'Denmark needs more hackers' is launched by Ubisoft in co-operation with the University of Copenhagen (KU) to get more young Danes to study IT.
