In the Digital Support Week the superpower of the future is discussed - it is worth increasing everyday digital skills!

Share

The Digital Support Week, which will be held for the second time, wants to increase the discussion on the superpowers of the future, in other words, the everyday digital skills. The Digital and Population Data Services Agency will organise a theme week between 30 August and 3 September 2021 together with the national digital support network. The theme week encourages each of us to develop our digital skills. The versatile programme provides interesting information for both those interested in developing their own skills and those offering digital support. The week's virtual events are free of charge and open to everyone.

The Digital Support Week, which is offered online by the Digital and Population Data Services Agency, is divided into theme days. During the first day, digital support is considered from the perspective of the provider, and later in the week, we will familiarise ourselves with, among other things, future digital skills, different user perspectives and the quality of digital services. Alongside the national programme, regional digital support providers organise local, practical programmes that provide tips on e-services, for example.

- The task of digital support is to help ensure that no one is excluded from the digital society. With regard to digitalisation, this is a permanent change, not just a temporary phenomenon. That is why different digital skills could actually be referred to as the superpower of the future, because it is precisely the wide-ranging development of these skills that will help us as a community to cope better. Digital skills are today's civic skills, says Minna Piirainen, Project Manager for Digital Support at the Digital and Population Data Services Agency.

Increasing digital skills makes everyday life smoother - and help is available
With the help of the theme week, the aim is to attract the attention towards digital support of citizens, companies and communities alike, so that all these levels of society can begin to develop their own digital competence, which is important to them.

At the same time, the week awakens people to realize that each of us sometimes provides digital support and sometimes needs it. For example, we may first help a loved one to use a service and then take part in data security training organised by the workplace. You do not need to know everything yourself, instead different digital support is always available.

– Digitalisation is a matter for everyone, and we want to promote positive experiences of it. The members of the digital support network are doing a truly valuable job in developing the digital competence of Finns, and in the future more experts and providers of assistance will be needed: teachers, service providers, more experienced loved ones, etc. This is why we encourage as many current digital support providers as possible and those interested in the topic to participate in the week's offer, Piirainen summarises.

Digiturvaviikko avaa digiturvallisuuden ajankohtaisimmat ilmiöt 25.-29.10.20218.9.2021 13:56:23 EEST | Tiedote

Digi- ja väestötietovirasto järjestää valtakunnallisen Digiturvaviikon toista kertaa lokakuun lopussa. Virtuaalinen teemaviikko tuo digitaalisen turvallisuuden työpaikkojen näytöille ympäri Suomen ja tarjoaa käytännöllisiä keinoja digiturvallisuuden parantamiseen. Viikko tarjoaa päivittäin livelähetyksiä verkossa – luvassa on mm. ajankohtaisia keskusteluja digiturvallisuuden tilasta, Digiturvabarometrin tuoreista tuloksista ja ihmisen roolista digimaailmassa sekä vinkkejä turvalliseen etätyöhön ja syväsukellus kyberhyökkäyksiltä suojautumiseen.

Tjänsten Katso är stängd – Många företag, föreningar och andra organisationer använder fortfarande enbart Katso-koden1.9.2021 07:50:00 EEST | Tiedote

Från början av september fungerar inte längre Katso-koden och Katso-auktorisering i i någon av Statsförvaltningens e-tjänster. I fortsättningen sköts uträttandet av ärenden för någon annans räkning med hjälp av Suomi.fi-tjänsterna. Många företag, föreningar och andra organisationer använder fortfarande enbart Katso-koden. Det lönar sig att bekanta sig med den nya praxisen i e-tjänsten i god tid före viktiga förfallodagar.

Katso-palvelu on suljettu – monilta yrityksiltä, yhdistyksiltä ja muilta yhteisöiltä puuttuu yhä sähköiseen asiointiin vaadittavat Suomi.fi-valtuudet1.9.2021 07:50:00 EEST | Tiedote

Katso-tunniste ja Katso-valtuus eivät enää toimi valtionhallinnon asiointipalveluissa. Monella yrityksellä, yhdistyksellä tai muulla yhteisöllä on edelleen käytössä vain Katso-tunniste. Puolesta-asioinnin uudet käytännöt kannattaa tarkistaa asiointipalveluista ajoissa ennen tärkeitä eräpäiviä.

Julkisen hallinnon digiturvallisuus kehittyy jatkuvasti, mutta uhkia on hallittava paremmin31.8.2021 12:00:00 EEST | Tiedote

Digi- ja väestötietoviraston toteuttaman kyselyn tulokset osoittavat, että julkisen hallinnon organisaatiot ovat kehittäneet järjestelmällisesti tietoturvaa, tietosuojaa ja häiriötilanteisiin varautumista viimeisen kahden vuoden aikana. Tähän kehitykseen ovat osaltaan vaikuttaneet lainsäädännön tuomat vaatimukset, muun muassa EU:n yleisen tietosuoja-asetuksen (25.5.2018) ja tiedonhallintalain (1.1.2020) voimaantulo. Aktiivista reagointia ovat vaatineet myös toimintaympäristön nopeat muutokset, kuten koronapandemian aiheuttama etätöihin siirtyminen sekä tietoverkkorikollisuuden ja kybervakoilun yleistyminen.

We are not born with digital skills - youth need more support in the digital world30.8.2021 06:00:00 EEST | Press release

Young people feel that they do not get enough support for learning how to use digital services. Being a digital native does not guarantee the ability to act in a digital world; instead, skills must be actively taught to young people. This is reflected in the survey published by the Digital and Population Data Services Agency on 30 August 2021 titled ‘The Digital Support for Young People’. The publication of the survey will launch the Digital Support Week, which focuses on the development of everyday digital skills from 30 August to 3 September 2021.

Digitala färdigheter uppstår inte av sig själva – ungdomarna behöver mer stöd för att fungera i den digitala världen30.8.2021 06:00:00 EEST | Tiedote

Unga upplever att de blir för ensamma i att lära sig digitala tjänster och digital ärendehantering. Digitaliseringen garanterar inte färdigheter i den digitala världen, utan man måste aktivt lära unga färdigheter. Detta framgår av kartläggningen Nuorten digitaidot ja digituen tarve (Ungas digitala färdigheter) som Myndigheten för digitalisering och befolkningsdata publicerade 30.8.2021. Kartläggningens publikation inleder Veckan för digitalt stöd 30.8–3.9.2021 som fokuserar på utveckling av digitala färdigheter i vardagen.
