National Cyber Security Centre's action plan describes the central tasks and goals for the coming years

Published 22.05.2014 | Updated 08.08.2014

In operation since 1 January 2014, the National Cyber Security Centre Finland (NCSC-FI) will develop and expand its operations throughout the year in question. Its most important tasks are provision of high-quality overviews and development of cooperation networks, detection capabilities, technical steering, monitoring and preparedness, as well as development of the competence of the NCSC-FI's personnel.

The goal for 2015 is to establish the NCSC-FI's operations. The goal is to continue distributing high-quality and informative overviews so that they benefit as many customers as possible. The regular, bi-directional exchange of information within the cooperation networks ensures that the actors are provided with high-quality overview services. Also, the goal is to develop the NCSC-FI's detection capabilities by increasing the number of customers subscribing to the NCSC-FI's serious information security violation detection and alert system HAVARO.

The goal is that the NCSC-FI within the Finnish Communications Regulatory Authority (FICORA) will develop into a nationally as well as internationally renowned cyber security authority offering increasingly diverse information security services.

During the NCSC-FI planning phase, FICORA operated in an open manner, conducting extensive hearings to learn the views of its various stakeholder groups and customers on its current operations as well as their future needs. The important feedback gained from these comments was utilised in the planning of the NCSC-FI's operations.
