I'm not surprised they called you at all. This is a very good thing
for Denmark! One of the more formal AppSec classification projects at
OWASP is the ASVS (Application Security Verification Standard). I
think that's a good place to start when dealing with governments who
are seeking formal advice on application security.

The lady in the other end of the phone was a bit confused by this, because normally they work with organizations that are very structured, have employed admins and are more closed. But she had to accepted it, naturally.
