Let's take care of digital security together

Digital security affects everyone. In everyday life, we face situations where securing our own information and ensuring that our family can be safe online is something that we need to consider. At Elisa, we are constantly working to ensure that the network we maintain and the services we provide are safe to use. We also want to raise awareness of how you can use networks and services more safely.

Elisa joins #kansalaiskyberteko campaign

The most important factor in ensuring a digitally safer Finland is the people themselves. By keeping our own skills and those of our loved ones sharp, we make the whole country safer. Elisa participates in the #kansalaiskyberteko campaign, which shares the same important goal as us: we want to ensure digital safety, especially for children and older Finns. In terms of concrete actions, we organise digital security schools for children and information sessions for seniors, among other things. Now you too can get involved and help with your own citizen cyber act. 

How do we protect against cyber crime?

Yet another information leak! We constantly encounter more news about data breaches and other cyber crimes. Who is responsible for the safety of ordinary people online, who protects us and what action can people take to protect themselves? We sent reporter Viki Eerikkilä to find out.

Cyber security exercises

Elisa and Elisians play an important role in ensuring the cyber security of Finns. By constantly practising how to respond to various cyber attacks, we prepare ourselves for real situations. Watch the video to see what cyber training is like at Elisa.

More than 2,000 children have studied in Elisa's Digischools

Since 2014, Elisa has been promoting digital skills among Finnish children with Elisa Digischools. The main focus of the educational content has been on the basics of coding and programming. In digital schools, children aged 10–12 have been able to get to know robots, the Internet of Things and digitalisation, among other things.

What Elisa does to block online scams

The number of online and phone scams continues to grow, and in many countries, they have already reached the point where people no longer want to answer phone calls from an unknown number. 

As a teleoperator, Elisa actively strives to take action to block online scams and to ensure that Finnish phone numbers remain reliable and safe in online and phone services.

Can you recognise phishing?

According to a survey of Finns commissioned by Elisa, 91% of respondents have been victims of scam attempts on the internet – you have also probably been the target of attempted fraud.

Do you know how to recognise scam attempts? Do you know the five rules for avoiding phishing scams?

What is a denial-of-service attack and why do they happen?

Consumers can do a lot to protect their devices themselves and ensure their security by immediately applying security updates and changing any default passwords to strong new passwords.

Safely joining the digital world

The new school year is beginning, and many children have received their very first mobile phone. Read a blog post by Tommi, the author of Isyyspakkaus blog, about what needs to be taken into account when the youngest ones in the family take their first steps into the digital world. 

How to recognise phishing

Almost all of us have received phishing messages – emails, texts or phone calls trying to get us to put our important information in the wrong hands. If you can remember a few important pieces of advice, you will be able to recognise most scam attempts.

What is social engineering?

Have you heard of social engineering? Understanding the psychology exploited by cybercriminals makes it easier to identify and combat scam attempts.
