Threat assesment

CTA regularly prepares an assessment of the terror threat against Denmark, which is, among other things, published on PET’s website.

The assessment of the terror threat against Denmark is a concentrate of an underlying analysis that has been borne out of CTA’s broad analysis work, stretching from specific threat assessments in relation to specific individuals and events to broader trend analyses and assessments of terror-related phenomena, such as analyses of terrorist groups and threats abroad that are of importance to Denmark.

The threat assessment is updated at appropriate intervals, or in the event of sudden and significant changes in the threat picture.

The purpose of publishing an assessment of the terror threat against Denmark is to provide citizens with a more extensive and better understanding of the threat from terrorism. Furthermore, the purpose is also to meet the increasing interest of the public for this area and at the same time to avoid the formation of myths and misunderstandings. Therefore, it has been decided to publish a summary of the current terrorist threat and a lengthy report describing the elements in further detail.

The assessment, however, includes no specific recommendations for the citizens. In case the threat assessments should give rise to specific recommendations, these will be given directly by the authorities responsible, such as Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Danish Emergency Management Agency and the national police districts. In the cases where the analyses give rise to specific recommendations to certain sectors or industries, these will be given by PET.
