The Finnish Government adopted a new national Information Security Strategy for 2009-2015 on 4 December 2008. In accordance with the Government Resolution on the Strategy a concrete action programme on information security will be outlined next spring.

The new Strategy focuses on three priorities: basic skills in the ubiquitous information society, information-related risk management and service reliability, and competitiveness and international network cooperation.

The aim of the Information Security Strategy is that people and businesses can trust that their transactions in information and communications networks and in the related services are secure. ICT service users must be able to identify and recognise the starting points for safe, secure and reliable services.
