This year's CriM (Crisis Management) seminar theme is "Preparing for national-level cyber crisis". Government-sponsored cyber attacks have become more common and they have also targeted critical infrastructure. There have been cases where ransomware has impacted the electric grid and healthcare. Preparedness of critical infrastructure has become a part of national security.

The purpose of the seminar is to explain the forces behind the cyber threat situation and how to protect the critical infrastructure. The program is built on current expert presentations and practical workshops. The morning sessions consist of presentations of e.g. technologies for prevention, mitigation and investigation of incidents. In the afternoons workshops the participants perform hands-on work on the related technologies. During the seminar there is a Capture The Flag competition, where interested participants can work in groups to solve security challenges with varying levels of difficulty.
