Vocabulary of Cyber Security helps both cyber experts and other interested

Published 12.06.2018

FICORA has participated in a vocabulary project together with the Secretariat of the Security Committee, the National Emergency Supply Agency, and the Finnish Terminology Centre TSK. The result of the project - Vocabulary of Cyber Security - has now been published. The vocabulary clarifies cyber security related concepts, harmonises the Finnish terms and gives them Swedish and English equivalents.

The vocabulary comprises about 80 terms, and the relations between them are also presented by means of conceptual schemas. The vocabulary is maintained in the TSK’s term bank and it will be updated as necessary.

It is and has been important to make a vocabulary of cyber security. This makes it possible to talk about cyber security related phenomena and things using the same terms, and more and more people are able to follow discussions on the subject. The vocabulary also simplifies national research and opens up the cyber security environment for everyone.
