The purpose of these instructions drawn up by the National Cyber Security Centre Finland of the Finnish Transport and Communications Agency Traficom is to offer advice to organisations in situations in which it is suspected that IDs have leaked to unauthorised persons or parties and that they have been exploited in a cyber attack. The instructions are focused on how to deal with the special characteristics of this type of information security incident. In order to resolve the situation completely, the organisation should maintain the incident response plan it has drawn up in case of information security incidents and follow it.
These instructions offer guidance on a general level on how to act in case of an information security breach and recover from it. It is recommended that the organisation should draw up a separate guide for its own use that takes its technological and operational environment into account in more detail. The project is funded by the National Emergency Supply Agency.
