Principles of protection of the register
The data in the log register contains confidential personal data.
For its own part, Kela monitors and supervises the lawfulness of data processing. Kela also has a self-monitoring plan to ensure data protection and data security.
Kela takes the necessary measures of its own accord if the data entered in the register has been processed unlawfully.
The processing of data in the register requires strong identification that identifies the data controller, as well as the management of access rights related to the system.
The logged data is only utilised in problem situations in accordance with Kela’s described process by the Data Protection Officer or a special working group. Only designated members of Kela’s personnel have access to the data recorded in Kanta services.
Physical protection of environments and devices
The logged data is technically protected to prevent editing and deleting.
Kela’s IT areas and the physical location of data are in Finland. Kela’s technical maintenance staff have limited access to the IT areas when the management of their duties requires such access.
