Public-private partnerships on cyber security: a practice of loyalty

Abstract: 
In this article, the authors explore the practice of private-public partnership as a means of mediating the challenges that accompany cybersecurity governance. The authors argue that with an emphasis on loyalty across the private and public sectors, both sides can mutually benefit from their shared interests and risks, as well as, their shared knowledge that can give a more comprehensive view of the current threat landscape. By using Denmark as an example, the authors give a picture of how actors on both sides disagree over cybersecurity knowledge, partnerships, and expertise. They then argue that this disagreement could be solved through PPPs as loyalty creates a sense of community. Keywords: Cybersecurity, Public-Private Partnerships, Loyalty, Governance
