Enterprises and government departments throughout northern Europe are preparing to adopt new technologies to enhance security and strengthen defences in the face of an ever-growing global cyber threat.
State-of-the-art improvements are being driven by and implemented thanks to a new collaboration between US cybersecurity and intelligence company, Resecurity, and Iceland-based managed security services provider, SecureIT.
SecureIT is behind much of the cybersecurity consultation, compliance and security solutions currently in service throughout Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, and other nations across an area that already has a well-established reputation for pioneering in technology; Spotify, Skype, SoundCloud and Nokia are just some of the innovative and profitable tech start-ups to originate in northern Europe.
Accordingly, the Nordic countries dominated the top ten spots for the 2021 Network Readiness Index, making them among the world’s top environments for technology use and creation, infrastructure, affordability, skills and technology adoption.
With this technology growth in the Nordic region, cyber risk and the need for highly advanced managed cybersecurity services and IT solutions providers to secure enterprises digital ecosystems has also increased.
To help Nordic business communities detect and mitigate cyber incidents, Resecurity’s partnership with SecureIT will see an expansion of advanced cyber threat intelligence services and solutions to local organisations.
Magnús Birgisson, CEO at SecureIT, said:
“In the face of growing cyber threats in our region, it’s essential Nordic enterprises invest in cybersecurity technologies and partners to secure their valuable data and networks.
“This is especially important as we enter an age where the threat landscapes are growing and a good security posture is essential for sustainable business operations. SecureIT is proud to leverage Resecurity’s solutions and expertise to help local organizations mitigate cyber risks, Birgisson added.
The new measures will allow organisations to automate identification, assessment and triage of incoming cyber threats while staying ahead of criminals using AI-driven tactics to strike companies at scale.
Cyber threat intelligence technology will provide proactive alerts and comprehensive visibility of digital risks targeting an organisation’s ecosystem. The platforms will allows administrators to reduce potential blind spots and security gaps by quickly seeing in-depth analysis and specific artefacts obtained through the dark web, botnets activity, network intelligence and high-quality threat intelligence data.
Gene Yoo, CEO of Resecurity, said:
“The Nordic region is a hub for digital innovation, and cybersecurity should be no different. At Resecurity, we’re investing heavily in R&D and AI-powered innovation to give enterprises the upper hand among emerging cyber threats.”
“We are proud to partner with a leading organization like SecureIT to provide best-in-class cyber intelligence solutions to the Nordic countries,” Yoo added.
