The Government Resolution on digital security in the public sector (Publications of the Ministry of Finance 2020:24) defines the development principles 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. The implementation plan for digital security in public administration 2020–2023 (Haukka) describes how the resolution is to be put to practice.
The 19 tasks selected to the implementation plan aim to develop the key services in terms of digital security in the public sector. The implementation plan also supports the preparation and implementation of the development programme for the Cyber Security Strategy 2019 that is getting started, and contributes to the implementation of the Government Decision on the Objectives of Security of Supply (1048/2018).
The implementation plan was prepared in a cross-sectoral coordination group appointed by the Ministry of Finance, which will also lead the implementation process. The implementation costs at the Ministry of Finance will be EUR 600,000, at the Digital and Population Data Services Agency EUR 2,280,000, and at the Finnish Transport and Communications Agency EUR 780,000, which gives the grand total of EUR 3,660,000.
