Valvira is responsible for monitoring the implementation of the Directive on Security of Network and Information Systems (NIS) in the healthcare sector in Finland. The law obliges designated industry-specific organisations to report any computer security threats and breaches that they detect. In Finland, Traficom collects reports from the monitoring authorities and acts as Finland's point of contact for engagement with the EU Member States.

Computer security threats and breaches regarding the social and healthcare sector must be reported to Valvira. The report can be submitted by sending an informal email to kirjaamo(at)valvira.fi. Valvira collects reports from the healthcare sector and submits them to Traficom. It is also advisable to report computer security threats and breaches to Traficom's National Cyber Security Centre.

The Directive on Security of Network and Information Systems and the national legislation form the framework for guiding and monitoring cyber security in key sectors in society. National legislation and obligations under the Directive on Security of Network and Information Systems (NIS) entered into force on 9 May 2018.
