F-Secure takes lead to defend Europe against cyber attacks

F-Secure has been instrumental in forming cyber security ethics alliance in Europe for defending the continent against increasing cyber threats

With an aim to defending Europe against escalating cyber threats, F-Secure, the great Finnish security software company—which has also been very active in APAC and Indian markets—has galvanized countries, organizations and partners into forming a cyber security ethics alliance under its ongoing project CANVAS (constructing an alliance for value-driven cyber security).
“Right now everyone is struggling to secure digital assets,” says Sean Sullivan, Security Advisor, F-Secure. “Doing nothing is not an option given the capabilities of today’s attackers, but at the same time, being too heavy handed harms innocent people and companies looking to make the most out of new technology. Governments, companies, and the public are coming to the European cyber security industry with questions about how to make security both effective and practical for their needs, and CANVAS is going to help us get answers to the people that need them”, adds Sullivan. The CANVAS brings together participants from various scientific traditions and fields to structure and disseminate research regarding the ethical, legal, empirical, and technological issues related to cyber security. It aims to create resources that inform policy makers, experts, and the public on the development of cyber security technologies and policies that offer security without sacrificing emerging needs, such as basic access rights.
The project, which has obtained three years of funding from the European Union and the Swiss State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation, begins amidst a flurry of new cyber security initiatives in Europe, including the European Commission’s recently announced 1.8 billion euro contractual public-private partnership*, as well as new legislation such as the network and information security (NIS) directive.
F-Secure, identified as a European cyber security leader in the project proposal, will play an integral role in CANVAS by helping the group obtain expert opinions from the cyber security industry, and share insights generated by the consortium with other industry experts. F-Secure will also lead an international workshop to discuss the current security challenges facing businesses, and provide expertise on the creation of resources (including a training curriculum and a massive open online course) on behalf of the cyber security industry.
“Cyber security is becoming more important as people and societies are relying more on digital infrastructure than ever before. But at the same time, it’s important that we avoid burning the village in order to save it. Values like autonomy, privacy, and equality need to be maintained while we’re securing systems and data, and CANVAS will work with people, companies and policy makers to help them balance these interests”, views Dr. Markus Christen, Senior Research Fellow & CANVAS Project Coordinator.
