Consideration of data security matters is an important part of the development of management, competence, risk management, and administration. Data security is a reflection of sound business practices and part of Hansel’s risk management.
At government level, responsibility for data security steering and development lies with the Ministry of Finance. Hansel’s framework agreements take into consideration the government’s data security regulations and guidelines.
Hansel helps promote government data security and creates models that facilitate the consideration of data security in public procurement activities. Hansel also helps improve data security at government level by offering expert support.
Key business-critical data security principles and requirements are set out in Hansel’s data security policy. Hansel is committed to upholding the basic data security level specified by the government. Data security obligations apply to all Hansel employees. Hansel’s data security manager is responsible for providing data security related training and instructions, and for in-house communications.
In tendering processes, a data security level warranted for each acquisition is specified as an absolute requirement. The requirements are mainly based on the Ministry of Finance’s VAHTI instructions or the national KATAKRI safety auditing criteria and supplemented with acquisition-specific special requirements. Hansel customers may naturally contribute to the data security level of the services provided.
No data leakages or data security deficiencies were reported in 2017.
