Facility Security Clearance - Cinia

Cinia Ltd has been awarded the Facility Security Clearance, based on the security clearance legislation. A Facility Security Clearance can be awarded to a Finnish company contracting with a public organisation when sensitive government information is being processed at the facility.

Cinia obtained the Facility Security Clearance through a process initiated by the Finnish Defence Forces. The Finnish Defence Forces awarded the certificate and will audit Cinia regularly to ensure continuous compliance. The auditing process covers the administrative, physical, personnel and information security fields in Cinia’s processes.

A Facility Security Clearance (FSC) is often required as proof that a company can be trusted to handle sensitive information properly when participating in national or international ventures or submitting a tender. 

According to the Security Clearance Act, the Finnish Defence Forces will routinely audit companies and require Facility Security Clearance qualifications from companies performing work for them or participating in their procurement activities.

The national Facility Security Clearance certificate is valid for five years. Additional audits may be required during this period.
