The intelligence risk assessment provides a current assessment of conditions abroad affecting Denmark's security. It outlines present and potential threats in a 10-year perspective, focusing on areas where Danish forces are deployed, on terrorist networks abroad threatening Denmark and Danish interests, including deployed Danish forces, as well as on conflict and crises areas worldwide.

The DDIS Intelligence Risk Assessment has been written on the basis of classified reports; however, it has been prepared with all-inclusive accessibility in mind. This has impact on the wording in the assessment and on the number of details included.
