The Finnish Tax Administration trusts Nixu in their cyber defense

For the Finnish Tax Administration, the very nature of its operations makes information security a critical issue. Because the Tax Administration’s services are increasingly digital, it requires highly-secured, 24/7 security solutions, latest technology and the expertise of top cybersecurity professionals.

The Tax Administration and Nixu have launched a partnership to bring the Tax Administration the Nixu Cyber Defense Center (CDC), a package of services for the monitoring, detection, addressing, investigation and prevention of security incidents as well as services for the investigation, management and aftercare of cyber crime.

The cyber defense center service delivered by Nixu provides 24/7 monitoring of security incidents in the Tax Administration’s IT environment. If the CDC detects an actual or a likely security incident, it launches investigation and prevention measures designed in cooperation with the Tax Administration and its other service providers.

“We wanted to partner with Nixu, because their extensive cybersecurity expertise and 24/7 monitoring service meet the Tax Administration’s requirements,” summarizes Samuli Bergström, Chief Security Officer at the Finnish Tax Administration.

“Defending oneself from sophisticated malware and targeted attacks is becoming more and more challenging for organizations. Cyberthreats are changing and evolving rapidly, and we need to monitor the environment constantly, keep an eye on threatening situations and, with the help of trained and experienced cybersecurity professionals, detect and prevent such threats. We are happy to support the Tax Administration in this critical task, and we are looking forward to our co-operation,” says Pietari Sarjakivi, Director of Managed Security Services at Nixu.
