SAMK took part in the Taisto exercise – Finland’s largest digital security exercise helped to prepare for current threats

SAMK today participated in Finland's largest digital security exercise Taisto. Taisto is a nationwide exercise that provides a safe opportunity to practice, test and develop digital security and to build up skills and confidence to rely on in the event of a real incident.

SAMK staff participated in the Taisto exercise.

Now in its sixth year, Taisto brought together hundreds of organizations from all sectors of society to train against current threats. The aim of the exercise is to develop digital security leadership, management and communication. At the same time, it improves the crisis resilience of society. This is the second time SAMK has participated in the exercise.

Taisto provided an opportunity to test digital security approaches, identify areas for improvement and practice responding to incidents in a safe but realistic training environment.

Themes include artificial intelligence, data mining and hybrid influence

This year’s Taisto exercise covered topics related to security practices, phishing and hybrid attacks. The exercise also looked at artificial intelligence and the challenges it brings. The exercise provided an opportunity to learn and develop critical thinking, risk management, security reactivity and incident communication.

The exercise is open to all and free of charge, and is organized by the Digital and Population Data Services Agency. The content of the exercise has been designed in cooperation with the National Bureau of Investigation, the Security Committee, the Office of the Data Protection Ombudsman, the Association of Finnish Municipalities, and the National Cyber Security Centre.
