Finnish Information Security Cluster (FISC) is an organization established in 2012 by major Finnish information security companies to promote their business and operations in national and international context. We are a branch association of Technology Industries of Finland.
We believe that cybersecurity involves everyone. It requires extensive public-private-partnership cooperation models. Finnish companies and individuals are well known for their inventions and efforts to improve security. This connected with excellent competencies on mobile and open source technologies gives a unique standpoint for companies with Finnish operations. Finland has also a strong national brand of creating trustworthy, reliable and efficient operations and companies. This gives our members an excellent starting point when creating their products and serving their customers.
We have nearly 80 member organizations. Most of them are small or medium-size companies concentrating purely on information and cyber security technologies, but also large multinationals having information security related operations in the country are welcomed.
The main target of our association is to improve cybersecurity and support its member organizations’ activities in the following areas: increase cross-border activities, promote public-private-partnerships, conduct market surveys, enable national depth and width of high-level education and dialogue with national and international regulatory bodies.
The organization is governed by Board of Directors and every member has their nominated personal vice members. Operationally FISC is headed by the executive director (CEO). The executive director is supported with executive secretaries and working groups.
FISC coordinates parts of its activities through working groups. Groups concentrate to their selected topic and organize joint activities related to it. Members can freely take part to groups activities. Each operation sector has either industry or operation specific team or executive secretary.
FISC also owns separate non-profit-business called Cyberlab Ltd. Cyberlab Ltd promotes and operates as an umbrella framework for internationalizing FISC members.
