The Government Resolution on digital security in public sector defines the principles of development and key services for advancing security in the digital environment. Within the framework of comprehensive security, the goal is to protect citizens, communities and society from the risks and threats that may affect information, services and the functioning of society in the digital environment. Citizens, businesses and communities must be able to rely on ethically sustainable public services that support open and transparent activities and are secure. Finland is known as a leader both in terms of the prerequisites for the digitalisation of society and in providing digital services for citizens and communities. A balanced approach to digitalisation and ensuring
the security of digital activities and services is therefore needed.
The Government Resolution and the implementation plan to advance its policies were prepared by an intersectoral coordination group set up by the Ministry of Finance. In line with these, measures are being taken to strengthen coordination and cooperation on the development of digital security and improve economic impact assessment practices. A further objective is to promote the skills of citizens and staff and the security of services. This supports the implementation of the cybersecurity strategy for 2019 in public administration.
