THE NATIONAL EMERGENCY SUPPLY AGENCY - NESA is a central government organisation operating under the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment of Finland. It is an expert organisation tasked with carrying out planning and operations related to the maintenance and development of Finland’s security of supply.
Traditionally, security of supply has meant ensuring the supply of materials. Today, however, the focus of security of supply operations is being increasingly shifted towards ensuring the operating capability of critical infrastructure. Critical infrastructure means the basic structures, services and related functions that are essential for maintaining the vital functions of society. These include the electrical grid, the water supply, transport routes and secure connections for data communications and financial transactions.
Continuity management creates operating procedures for severe disruptions. It is usually a voluntary activity, but in some industries, Finnish legislation obligates organisations to ensure the continuity of their operations in different circumstances.
- Identification of business threats, risks, disruptions and dependencies
- Assessment of the impacts of the threats on the organisation and its operator network
- Organisation and implementation of operating procedures in the event of disruptions
- Ensuring the ability of critical partners to function during disruptions
- Protection of company´s business interests and value-creation capacity.
