Bornholm's Energy & Supply needed help to strengthen their IT security. They were looking for an all-in-one cybersecurity tool, with both password manager, 2FA, password generator and access management. They started by testing Uniqkey in their IT department and then ran a period where other employees, from the other departments, had the opportunity to try out Uniqkey in their daily work. This way, Uniqkey has given Bornholms Energy & Supply an overview of their employees movements online and a much better insight into the employees security scores when it comes to their passwords.

Cyber attacks would affect the entire supply

If Bornholms Energy & Supply is exposed to a cyber attack, it will in the worst case affect the supply on the whole island of Bornholm. It would be really bad for them financially, but would also have a huge impact on the data they would lose both internally and in relation to their customers. Therefore, it has been highly important for them to find an all-in-one solution that can protect them from cyber attacks from all sides.

The entire IT security area is really important to Bornholm's Energy & Supply, because they are a supply company. There are both regulations and laws that they must comply with and they have a strong focus on IT security in general. Protection of infrastructure is also a really important area to consider when choosing a powerful tool against hacker attacks and Bornholm's Energy & Supply has opened its eyes to the fact, that the weakest link in cyber security is employees.

Employees may click on a phishing email or reuse too many weak passwords. These are, among other things, the risks that Bornholm's Energy & Supply wanted to avoid completely.

The solution

Bornholm's Energy & Supply wanted to ensure that their employees got some more complex passwords andwould avoid reusing weak passwords across systems. It has proven to be a good investment to use Uniqkey, as they internally in the company spend less time on IT support, as the employees now have a password manager at hand to help them. That way, the IT department avoided spending a lot of time resetting passwords and can focus more on the daily operational workflow.

The Head of IT at Bornholm's Energy & Supply, Kristoffer Munch, is particularly pleased with Uniqkey's Access Management feature, which allows him to approve access directly in the browser, so he simply can authenticate once a day. He also appreciates Uniqkey's built-in 2FA with autofill, so with just a click you can log in with a password and authentication code, without having to type anything yourself.

Support in Danish

Bornholm's Energy & Supply is delighted to have a Danish-speaking support in direct line. The Head of IT, Kristoffer Munch, experienced Uniqkeys support as very cooperative and quick to find a solution if they have experienced challenges. The combination of support on the phone, the possibility of chat and being able to report directly in the browser, makes it easy for Bornholm's Energy & Supply to get in touch with Uniqkey's support during a busy work day.

We have a security forum, among some energy companies, where there have been some who have asked about Uniqkey. It has provided an opportunity to tell about our experience of using Uniqkey and in this way we have passed on the recommendation to both companies on Bornholm, but also other companies in the industry that have called and asked.

“Even if I am no longer a part of the company, one day, I would like to keep using Uniqkey as a cybersecurity tool, because it is a really easy way to carry your passwords along with you on a daily basis.”
