Many companies - like Nixu, which bills itself as the Nordic region's largest information security consulting firm - struggle to attract talent to their ranks.
Nixu employs some 100 information security experts and software developers but have a problem getting workers to fill all the jobs they could offer.
When asked if his company has job openings in its data security branch, Nixu's President and CEO Timo Kotilainen said in no uncertain terms that there have been vacancies for years. He expects the demand to continue for the next 30 years at least.
Industry experts say that the Finnish data security sector needs an influx of 600 new employees this year alone.
The current shortage of data security gurus is not just a Finnish problem - the European Commission estimates that to keep up with the growth in the industry, Europe needs to foster a half million more of these professionals by 2015.
As it stands, a handful of people with skills in fields like wireless networks or mobile banking security can virtually pick and choose their employers.
Analysts say that Finnish universities should be producing more data security experts, not by the hundreds but by the thousands.
