**As we celebrate our 25th anniversary over the next month, we’re paying tribute to the women and men who helped build the success story that is F-Secure. You can experience that story here and help us fight malware in our anniversary arcade game.**

**Today we speak to our Chief Financial Officer Taneli Virtanen who joined F-Secure in 1999.**

**Where were you 25 years ago?**

*I was studying at Helsinki School of Economics. It was fascinating.*

**What’s surprised you most since you’ve joined F-Secure?**

*During my 14 years at F-Secure, there have been many highlights. The company spirit is strong; as a result, there are quite a few people that have left and returned to the Company.*

**What’s your favorite piece of technology?**

*I think that we have created many great things over the years. Of course, all money-making technology is close to my heart :).*

**What F-Secure memory is most irreplaceable to you?**

*Hard to say one; IPO time was exciting, turning positive was great and the global expansion is really interesting.*

**How will the world be different in 25 years?**

*As they say “Forecasting is difficult, especially about the future”. But I am sure that it will be very different be in many ways.*

**What’s your 25**^{th} birthday wish for F-Secure?

*Be bold, be innovative and good luck.*
