DK Hostmaster are collaborating with the Danish National Police in the fight against IT scammers exploiting the corona crisis.
As a result of the coronavirus pandemic, IT security in Denmark is also under attack. DK Hostmaster and the Danish National Police have therefore entered into a collaboration to put an end to as much of the criminal activity as possible. DK Hostmaster can help the Danish National Police in their investigation work by assisting in the detection of new registrations of .dk domain names that can be linked to online crime.
In concrete terms, DK Hostmaster informs the Danish National Police daily about new registrations, after which the Danish National Police is responsible for the continued process. DK Hostmaster is thus not included in the decision-making process regarding which domain names are selected for examination.
At the Danish National Police, the cooperation has been very useful and has given concrete results.
“In this Covid-19 period, the collaboration is very valuable and appreciated. It allows us to intervene significantly more quickly on the websites created solely to scam others. In the current situation, we are all particularly vulnerable, so we will not accept that anyone taking advantage of the situation,” says Police Inspector Henrik Sønderby from the Danish National Police.
The collaboration was initiated when Denmark was closed down. The CEO of DK Hostmaster, Jakob Truelsen is also pleased that efforts were made quickly.
“We are pleased to be able to help the authorities in this peculiar situation the corona crisis has brought us in. We face a new challenge that we quickly must find solutions to, and we do the best by contributing what we can. First and foremost, we can contribute by ensuring as good and fast cooperation as possible, so of course we do so,” says Jakob Truelsen.
