    Insta supports the Finnish Centre for Pensions’ preparedness to detect information security incidents and prevent cyber threats

    The Finnish Centre for Pensions is a statutory co-operation body, which operates in support of a durable, reliable, fair and efficiently organized pension provision. Its customers include pension providers in the private and public sectors, the Social Insurance Institution, the authorities, decision-makers, researchers and the media. A well-functioning and secure IT operating environment is critical for an employment pension information centre.

    The Finnish Centre for Pensions and Insta have been partners for several years, and the cooperation continues. The services provided by Insta to the Finnish Centre for Pensions (ETK) include monitoring the cybersecurity of ETK’s IT environment from Insta’s Security Operations Center, analyzing events and responding to incidents, regular communication about information security events and incidents and close cooperation with ETK and third-party service providers.

    – Continuous security monitoring and analyzing is very demanding, which is why outsourcing it to experts makes sense. Insta provides us with expertise and knowledge based on experience that they have accumulated through other customer relationships, says Erkki Tenkula, Head of the Information Systems Department at ETK.

    The service package also covers vulnerability management and the HAVARO 2.0 service, whereby Insta’s Security Operations Center processes and analyzes serious information security threats detected by Traficom. With the use of cloud services increasing, cloud security monitoring has also been included in the cooperation.

    – Our partnership has run very smoothly. Insta provides us with state-of-the-art services, and we are very pleased with the cooperation, says Tenkula.
