About speakers: 

Maria Moilanen, Customer Success Manager, Hoxhunt
Maria graduated with a law degree in 2015, and while planning the next chapter in her life, came across the opportunity to join a social media tech startup. Maria spent the next 5 years as the lady with many hats, learning the ins and outs of the tech industry, social media, advertising, and how to run a business in a global world. Passionate about being a force of the good in the world, she was immediately drawn to cybersecurity when considering the next step in her career. With the increase in cybercrime due to the pandemic, she strongly felt she wanted to contribute to keeping companies and people safe online. Maria currently works as a Customer Success Manager at Hoxhunt and is focused on the onboarding experience of new customers.

Erno Pasanen, Cybersecurity researcher, Finnish Defence Research Agency
Erno graduated from National Defence University with Bachelor of military sciences in 2009, majoring in military technology. After the long and arduous road of young officer and upgrading to full masters in 2015 the way was open for a long career aboard the Finnish Defence Forces. After a leap of faith aboard the Jyväskylä’s Cyber Security Masters program in 2016 Erno decided that a career in Cyber was well within grasp. Erno´s passion lies on deciphering how stuff works, and especially repairing things after they have “surprisingly” broken. Erno´s motto of “how hard can it be?” has landed him in dire straits quite many times, but he has managed to keep his head above the surface.
