The Debt Office is a central part of the central government financial system.  Information about its activities must therefore be handled in a secure way. Customers also need to feel secure about how personal data are handled and the Debt Office's premises must be safe and secure.

Information management

Information is one of the Debt Office's most important strategic resources and information is managed so that it cannot be accessed by unauthorised parties. Work on identifying risks and securing assets, resources and processes therefore gives great attention to information security and information classification.

Risk and vulnerability analyses

Work on risk and vulnerability analyses is a central part of security work. The Debt Office identifies deficiencies so that action can be taken.

Personal data security

Information about customers is managed so that no unauthorised party can access it. The Debt Office follows the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and has strict requirements concerning IT security and secrecy, both internally and for suppliers.

Secure premises

Staff and visitors must be safe in the Debt Office's premises. The Debt Office works continuously on reviewing protection and follows the regulations in the area.

Contingency planning

The Debt Office sets high demands concerning its ability to continue to conduct its operations during crises and in the event of heightened alerts and, ultimately, war. Emergency preparedness is therefore an important part of security work and the Debt Office cooperates with other agencies in order to ensure that the Debt Office's part of the financial system always works.

Continuity planning

In order to have good emergency preparedness the Debt Office works on continuity planning.  The point of this work is to counter interruptions of activities and to protect critical processes from the effects of unforeseen serious disturbances or disasters.


The Debt Office takes part in cooperation between government agencies and the private sector that is intended to ensure that the financial system continues to function in crisis situations. The experience and knowledge in these groups contributes to the coordination of the Debt Office's own continuity planning with external parties.

The forums for cooperation are the private-public co-operation in the financial sector (”Finansiella Sektorns Privat-Offentliga Samverkan”, FSPOS) and the cooperation for economic security (”Samverkansområdet för ekonomisk säkerhet”, SOES).
