(Kenneth Kahri)

In this paper we introduce you to the University of Helsinki’s point of view to general threat landscape in academic IT and many of the ways we have tried to accomplish our goals in mitigating the risk posed by both the external and internal threats based on our experience of which we have drafted a list of agents countering which we consider a priority. On the technical side we describe out monitoring tools and processes. On the non-technical side, the user still remains the crucial factor in causing and preventing IT security incidents. We will brief you in our efforts in educating users in various roles and keeping the security awareness on a good level. The key to successfully design countermeasures for both new and traditional threats is to carry out systematic risk analysis regularly. View Paper
