The representatives of the NSC Office shared information to Finnish counterparts, about ongoing reform in the field of critical infrastructure protection (CIP) and the respective action plan.
The reform, implemented in the CIP field with the coordination of the NSC Office, encompasses two separate dimensions. The first one refers to the creation of a legal and conceptual framework in the field of critical infrastructure protection, whereas the second direction envisages identification of critical infrastructure subjects and elaboration of the list of national critical infrastructure, development of security standards for the resilience of critical infrastructure subjects and monitoring of their enforcement, as well as regulation of investment policy with regard to critical infrastructure.
