Our story

The powerful development of information society and various information environments with it challenges us to develop and renew our customary operation ways and our systems. For organisations cyber security plays a remarkable role affecting the operations, personnel, facilities and knowledge in organisations. Detecting vulnerabilities in own services and operations in good time helps to prevent cyber threats; by adding knowledge we can prepare ourselves to prevent the threats and defend against them.

JAMK and JYVSECTEC

JYVSECTEC at JAMK University of Applied Sciences, in the Institute of Information Technology was started as a project in September 2011 to face a topical challenge. The aim of the project has been to create in Central Finland one of Finland’s leading research and development and training centres and develop the national and international co-operation network of companies and actors. With the RGCE development environment (Real Global Cyber Environment) JYVSECTEC has been able to offer modern facilities as well as expertise and systems to develop the cyber security knowledge of organi-sations and create systems to implement cyber security exercises.

Funding

JYVSECTEC was partly funded by Regional Council of Central Finland and European Regional Development Fund. Co-operation partners were Airbus Defence and Space Ltd, Ajeco Ltd, Descom Ltd, Relator Ltd, and Jyväskylä Regional Development Company Jykes Ltd. The project that stared in 2011 gained further funding in 2015 spring till the end of 2017 to develop a cyber security cluster and the investments connected to that. Besides public funding the project collaborates with companies such as Airbus Defence and Space Ltd, Cygate Ltd, Elisa PLC, Fingrid PLC and TeliaSonera Finland PLC.
