The Swedish Pensions Agency manages pension investments for the Swedish public. It has selected Cybercom's portal service to manage its information security. The assignment is the first business deal in the major framework agreement for e-government support services that the Legal, Financial, and Administrative Services Agency signed with Cybercom and a few weeks ago.

"It feels great to be first company to receive business from this key frame agreement," says Anders Franzén, vice managing director for Sweden at Cybercom. "This is the first demonstration that governmental agencies are choosing cloud services for their e-government needs. At Cybercom, this is an area that we really believe in."

The assignment to support the Swedish Pensions Agency management of information security with Cybercom Compliance Portal, Cybercom's portal solution for compliance management, is effective until further notice. In 2011, Cybercom will also assist the agency in implementing a decentralised governance model for information security on a consulting basis.

"These IT security efforts in the Pensions Agency will contribute to establishing security and confidence for our operations," says Henrik Engström, director of the security team at the Swedish Pensions Agency. "We have chosen a decentralised method of action for security governance as support to our implementation of our internal security framework."

Through this cloud service, the Swedish Pensions Agency receives access to functions such as management of security requirements, risk analyses, and reporting frameworks for agency security efforts. The solution supports individual employee's security work, while creating a central overview.

"We're assisting the Swedish Pensions Agency with a simple method to gain an immediate overview of the agency's security status," says Bengt Berg, head of PCI DSS services at Cybercom Sweden.
