A project included in Elisa Research projects, Cybersecurity Status for Critical Service Systems, was launched in late 2014 and concluded in March 2016.
Implemented in cooperation with the University of Jyväskylä and JAMK University of Applied Sciences, the project aimed to study and develop for Elisa new cybersecurity status services,
such as applications that study cybersecurity, operation and service models, and technologies. The project focused on products and services that improve cybersecurity as well as procedures to be applied during and after cyberattacks.
Four new cybersecurity services for Elisa were developed:
1) Elisa Kyberturvakeskus, a service for Elisa’s corporate customers that allows them to proactively manage their information security threats and nonconformances.
2) Elisa Verkkouhkien hallinta (NSI), a service that monitors network traffic and uses advanced analytics to provide a view of the environment, threats and systems available to manage the whole.
3) Elisa Lokienhallinta (SIEM), a service for Elisa’s corporate customers that allows them to manage their information security data and events. The service is meant to be used with the Elisa Kyberturvakeskus service to improve the accuracy and performance of the defence architecture and to be integrated with other protection systems, such as Elisa Kilpi.
4) Kyberharjoitus, a service that allows customers to practise together with Elisa the protection of their ICT resources and the related activities in the cyber world.
In 2016, we launched customer pilot projects with these new services. We aim to expand our service offering in a controlled manner. Demand for services that improve cybersecurity has increased, and new employees were recruited during the project period to provide new cybersecurity services for the Elisa portfolio.
