A. SECURITY IN FINNISH DEFENCE
This segment provides an overview of the different fields of security services in the Defence Administration. In addition to the Ministry of Defence, the arrangements also apply to all other parts of the Defence Administration, namely the Defence Forces, the Construction Establishment of Defence Administration and the Shared Service Centre, Defence.
B. DESIGNATED SECURITY AUTHORITY
Finland, as many other countries, has a National Security Authority (NSA) organization. In Finland these responsibilities have been decentralized within the central government. Main task for this organisation is to ensure that the Finnish state, its citizens as well as industry and communities can participate in international cooperation where classified information or material is exchanged. The Ministry of Defence is one of the Designated Security Authorities (DSA) in Finland. The different DSAs are responsible for their own segment within the mission of the National Security Authority.
