The National Cyber Security Centre Finland (NCSC-FI) has been established within Finnish Communications Regulatory Authority (FICORA) on 1 January 2014. The NCSC-FI monitors cyber security threats of national interest and produces advanced situation awareness services to its many constituents. To facilitate that, the NCSC-FI collects and correlates information from a variety of sources. FICORA's existing duties in the fields of Incident Response (CERT-FI) and Information Assurance (NCSA-FI) have been merged into the new NCSC-FI. Beginning of 2014 these duties are functions of the National Cyber Security Centre Finland.

Finnish telecommunications providers are obligated by law to report information security incidents to NCSC-FI. According to law, any identified threats to information security must also be reported. To complement the mandatory reporting, NCSC-FI also welcomes voluntary reports from all other organisations in public and private sector as well as from individuals and foreign parties.

NCSC-FI maintains the national information security situation awareness system. The global information security situation is constantly being monitored for threats, anomalous events, security incidents, and vulnerabilities in information systems that may be of relevance to Finnish interest. The situation reports are being circulated in form of blog entries, technical vulnerability notes, advisories and warnings as well as periodicals and technical guides. Public situation reports are being published on a web page. Those organisations that are considered to be part of or operating critical national infrastructures are invited to subscribe to CERT-FI's limited circulation reports.

NCSC-FI provides vulnerability coordination services in an effort to minimise the harmful effects of faulty and vulnerable software to the end users and the public at large.

Following the best traditions of Computer Security Incident Response Teams (CSIRT), the new NCSC-FI is heavily networked. We are in contact on a daily basis with private sector organisations and various government agencies in Finland and abroad. Computer security incident handling is a concerted effort requiring operational level cooperation and active information exchange. NCSC-FI is proud to be a part of the global CSIRT community.
