The challenge of securing the entire supply chain

Valmet Automation Business Line has been developing their cyber security capabilities systematically for decades. Unlike many other organizations, which select a small critical subset of their operations to be certified, Valmet set a more ambitious goal to define, create and implement a holistic information security management system with the scope of including the whole customer supply chain from R&D to sales, delivery projects and lifecycle services. The Valmet ecosystem also includes partners, who also play an important role in information security. Valmet’s customers appreciate and expect comprehensive management of cyber security, taking into account technology, people and processes.

New information security management system

Valmet’s cyber security experts and Insta’s security advisors developed an information security management system to cover the entire customer delivery supply chain. The team paid special attention to training the staff and increasing the personnel’s awareness of cyber security, and to tools which make it easy to apply and follow the information security management system. Thanks to the tooling, it's easy for the members of the organization to manage information security in practice. The visibility given by the tools also helps with continuous maintenance and improvement of the information security management system.

Valmet was granted a ISO/IEC 27001 certificate for their information security management system in August 2020. Please find Valmet’s certificate at this link:


We developed a new information security management system together with Insta. The development, adoption and ISO 27001 certification of the system was a huge success. The system was built to be extremely practical and we managed to integrate it very well to the organization’s existing ways of working. Thanks to this project, the awareness and know-how of cyber security have risen to a higher level throughout the organization. It is my pleasure to recommend Insta’s cyber security expert services to other organizations. - Markku Tyynelä, Security Manager,Valmet Automation Business Line
