How do we take care of our customers’ data protection?

Technical protection of data in registers

The data contained in the register that is processed electronically is technically protected, for example with firewalls, password policy and by offering Talenom’s customers two-factor authentication to customer information systems.

The data transfer between the customer and Talenom’s services is encrypted with TLS (Transport Layer Security) technology. Data is backed up regularly and backups are stored in a different location than where the primary data is located.

Talenom conducts internal and third-party assessments and audits that cover both the technical security of critical information systems and the processes and guidelines for administrative information security and data protection.

Administrative protection of registers

Talenom has an information security policy that every new employee goes through when they start working at Talenom. The information security policy describes the general rules on information security and data protection that are mandatory for the employee.

Talenom staff’s information security and data protection awareness is regularly maintained in various ways: By organizing both regular information sharing sessions on information security and data protection for the entire company’s personnel, and by organizing mandatory information security and data protection training for employees every year.

The data contained in the registers can be accessed based on separately granted access rights to Talenom’s employees and subcontractors acting on behalf of Talenom. User access rights are regularly reviewed. System administrators’ access rights are monitored and removed when the user no longer needs them. The access rights of employees who have left Talenom are removed at the end of the employment relationship.

In accordance with the information security policy, the customer’s data is only processed by a Talenom employee whose work duties require it. The processing of customer data on other grounds is prohibited, even if the employee would have a technical access to customer data based on his or her role and business reasons.

All Talenom’s personnel, and subcontractors acting on Talenom’s behalf, have a duty of confidentiality in relation to all Talenom’s customer and personal data. The obligation of confidentiality is recorded in the employment contracts of Talenom’s personnel and in agreements with third parties, including sanctions for violation of confidentiality.

Physical protection of data in registers

Customer data is processed in information systems located in the data center in Finland or in Cloud services located in the European Union. 

In data centers located in Finland, the most important production systems have been duplicated in two physically separated data centers to ensure safety, data preservation and service continuity in normal and exceptional situations. 

These data centers provided by the service provider use certified safety practices, access control and monitoring procedures.

Disclosure of data and use of subcontractors

Talenom may, if necessary, disclose personal data to any company within the Talenom Group.

In certain cases, Talenom must also disclose personal data to authorities if required by applicable law or regulation or a request from a judicial or administrative authority.
