We are an independent cyber security research, training and development center. Our goal is to develop cyber security expertise and know-how by providing organizations with stuff training, and by conducting research and development with national and international professionals.
On 20 April 2017, the Security Committee approved the Implementation Programme for Finland’s Cyber Security Strategy for 2017–2020 that had been under preparation since the spring of 2016. The implementation programme is a continuation to the first implementation programme approved in 2014. The implementation programme now approved examines the development of cyber security in the context comprising the public, private and the third sector where the role of a citizen is that of a client.
The implementation programme assembles together broad-scale and significant projects and measures implemented on the national scale to improve data and cyber security, presenting them in a consistently structured way and with responsibilities defined. Responsibilities for the projects and measures concerned are divided between the various operators that contributed to the preparation of the implementation programme. The preparation of the implementation programme involved several parties representing public administration, business and industry, various organisations and the academic world.
As part of JAMK University of Applied Sciences, JYVSECTEC is responsible for producing the Finnish Cyber Security Certificate (FINCSC) that is incorporated as part of the implementation programme. The responsibility concerned is described in chapter II, section 20 of the implementation programme. FINCSC certification is an affordable and effective way to measure and substantiate the level of cyber security in an organisation. Further information about the certification is available at http://jyvsectec.fi/en/services/fincsc-finnish-cyber-security-certificate/ (in english) or www.fincsc.fi (in finnish).

Ministry of Defence of Finland and the The Security Committee of Finland organise the fifth national cyber exercise with JYVSECTEC cyber security research, development and training center. Exercise will be held on 8th – 11th of May 2017.
The scope of JYVSECTEC’s cyber exercise activities expands to also cover industrial automation environments. As part of the the cyber exercise arranged at JAMK on 15–16 February 2017, the Finnish national electricity transmission grid operator Fingrid Oyj and power grid company Elenia Oy piloted a new cyber security exercise targeted at operators in the industry sector.
A fictional road tunnel was modelled in the exercise environment, the traffic control automation of which was operated by Funnel Oy, a company depicted for the purposes of the exercise. Another fictional operator related to the exercise was a power transmission company named Watti Oy. It operates the power supply of the road tunnel maintained by Funnel. Funnel and Watti manage their respective automation environments using state-of-the-art supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems and other IT infrastructure set up for the exercise environment.
The industrial automation systems used in the exercise are integrated as part of the Realistic Global Cyber Environment (RGCE) developed by JYVSECTEC to allow conducting the exercise using realistic attack and defence methods. Further information about the RGCE environment and its function-specific solutions can be found from our latest publication JYVSECTEC Cyber Range.
Mika Karjalainen has been appointed as business manager at Institute of Information Technology.
In his job, Mika is responsible for the Institute of Information Technology’s business services, as well as strategic management, including the development of customer cooperation, and JYVSECTEC’s information and cyber security services.
We have introduced a new service for assessing and certifying the level of cyber security in organisations. The service is known as ‘FINCSC – Finnish Cyber Security Certificate’. It is suitable for all kinds of organisations regardless of their type, size or line of business and serves as a tool for securing the continuity of business.
The service is used for measuring the level of cyber security in organisations and for assessing their ability to prepare against modern cyber threats. The result obtained from the measurement also serves as a guideline in selecting the best data security practices and as an enabler for certification. The service is provided by the assessment organisations we have accredited for the purpose.
Further information about the FINCSC certification and the process for applying for certification is available at www.fincsc.fi Follow us on Twitter at @FINCSC_fi
