Thank you for inviting me to speak.

I have these two key messages today:

  1. Increased digitisation is good news for customers, banks and society in general.
  2. Increased digitisation also makes the sector more vulnerable to destructive hacker attacks, but Danmarks Nationalbank and the sector are continuously working to prevent this.
