Finland: Government Approves Cybersecurity Strategy 2019

On October 4, 2019, the Finnish government announced it had approved a decision on the Cybersecurity Strategy 2019. The strategy is based on the Cybersecurity Strategy 2013 and its purpose is to support the availability of reliable digital services and to promote the development of safe business operations.

The need to update the cybersecurity strategy from 2013 is derived from developments that have taken place in the business environment and in areas identified in national operations. For example, digital platforms, ecosystems, production models for new services, development of new equipment and data communication. In addition, new risks have been arisen alongside the traditional human risks, such as cybercrime and cyber-espionage.
