"We bring cybersecurity expertise to projects and help organizations to safeguard their future."

What I do

My job is to help our clients secure their operations and data. We aim to guarantee that organizations are protected and prepared for a wide range of adverse incidents. I describe it as making sure that our clients can operate in crises or bad situations, for example, if they are hit with ransomware or a similar cyber threat, or they are the targets of data breaches. We try to understand the threats, prepare for them and remember always that most threats and risks that have the biggest impact are the ones that we don’t account for. Hence, we need to help our clients be prepared for anything, which sounds as challenging as it is.

Recently, I have worked with a lot of public service organizations, which brings a national preparedness view into my work. I contribute to figuring out how to assure our societies capability to operate even when faced with cyber threats. For me, this task is very fulfilling, as I can see the results of my work in my daily life.

A day in my life

Within my role, I interact a lot with our business groups and different industry experts, who are helping their respective fields leverage modern technology in accelerating their organizations. Thus, in my everyday work, I have the opportunity not only to improve in security knowledge but also to learn about modern technology, industry-specific expertise and what different aspects cybersecurity has in various organizations.

Our global reach gives us a unique opportunity to learn and cross-pollinate different experiences. I love the fact that I can reach out to our experts in the US, Israel and Asia to have a view of how they see the world. Additionally, I am contributing to the Nordic view and take learnings to evolve our approach here in Finland.

My work-life balance is based on disconnecting in my spare time, where I dedicate time to family, reading and sports, mostly going to the gym. I spend also a lot of my free time going on hikes and enjoying the tremendous Finnish nature.

My advice

Security is a mix of leadership, management, culture, processes and technology. As an organizational problem, it goes across all activities and to make a difference we need people with different skills and strengths. I would encourage everyone interested in security to keep an open mind and look at all the different areas of security with an open mind. Certainly, we are quite a technology-driven field at times. Although the field is so much wider than that, so if you enjoy getting a holistic understanding and to work with people, you can definitely be in service for security.
