SUB-APPENDIX B – DESCRIPTION OF SECURITY MEASURES
This appendix describes the physical, technical and organizational security measures which the Processor
("Visma") as a minimum has implemented in accordance with the Main Contract and Agreement.
Services designed for security From planning to deployment of new services or features, Visma follows its Security Development Lifecycle, which entails that security requirements are embedded and measured during development. Security requirements are based on a combination of sector and client-specific requirements as well as best practice, in compliance with privacy laws and regulations.
Visma performs security audits and penetration testing using both internal and external experts.
Visma's services are tested to ensure resilience against attacks such as SQLi, XSS and CSRF, session
hijacking, and other threats. Visma's baseline is OWASP top 10.
The minimum security requirements that all development teams follow include:
● that passwords are never stored as text but are always “hashed and salted” server side, which
entails that even Visma is unable to see a customer's password. If a password is lost, Visma will
automatically generate a new one.
● that communication always takes place via an encrypted connection.
Visma stores personal data at IT Relation (sub-processor)
Visma uses IT Relation as a sub-processor to host and store all Personal Data. IT Relation follows local
European regulations and requirements regarding the protection of personal data and holds numerous
certifications and declarations including ISO 27001, ISAE 3402 II and ISAE 3000.
For more information on IT Relation, please click here: https://www.it-relation.com
Monitoring and protection
Visma carefully monitors all services when making them available to the customers. This includes continuous scanning for vulnerabilities, monitoring of intrusion attempts as well as abuse detection.
When incidents occur, Visma has a dedicated Security Incident Team that provides the necessary coordination, management, feedback and communication. The team is responsible for assessing, responding to and learning from information security incidents to make sure that Visma minimizes the risk of such incidents recurring.
Visma has implemented several physical security measures, which include:
● 24 hour surveillance
● External and internal video monitoring and traceability of access to the premises
● Installed burglar alarms at relevant facilities
● Environmental control
● Uninterruptible power supply, which is regularly tested against fictional power outages
Visma protects all relevant facilities with burglar alarms. Only relevant employees will have access to Visma's facilities.
Access to the Controller's personal data is limited to a few employees who have a work-related need to access the information and who work with operations and technical support. Other employees will only gain access to the Controller's data when actively approved by the Controller.
Firewalls and antivirus
Visma ensures that all machines and servers are equipped with antivirus software to block viruses, malware, etc. The network is protected by firewalls to ensure protection against unauthorized access.
Visma ensures that Visma Addo follows industry standards. All external communication is encrypted using up to 2048 bit. Communication from IT Relation.
All communication from IT Relation to external parties is encrypted using X.509 certificates, which is a
standard for Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) issued by an authorized organization called Certificate Authority (CA), which is responsible for confirmation of identity. The certificate contains two keys for asymmetric encryption, a public key and a private key. Only the certificate owner has access to the private key used for encryption. The encrypted content can be decrypted only with the matching public key. By relying on the certificate issuer, the sender’s identity is ensured and thus the content. Visma Addo supports the newest and securest encryption and is committed to updating it when essential. Currently, Visma Addo supports TLS v.1.2
Communication with third-party suppliers
All communication with Nets and e-Boks is secured using a VOCES certificate issued by Nets. VOCES is a
merchant certificate that represents a business, in this particular case, Visma. The VOCES is used to secure
communication between different parties. Visma Addo supports the newest and securest encryption and is committed to updating it when essential. Currently, Visma Addo supports TLS v. 1.2
Delivery of e-mails to a recipient requires encryption of attachments as they may contain sensitive personal information. The attached documents are encrypted up to 2048-bit AES (Advanced Encryption Standard).
Visma logs all access to the services with the purpose of tracing activity and documenting all events in the
system. The logging registers the time of access and which employee has accessed the data.
Deletion and discarding IT storage.
Hard drives and other storing media that are discarded from the operation are destroyed in a way that makes it impossible to restore the data. All reused discs are formatted in accordance with applicable industry standards.
Storage of data and backup
Visma regularly carries out a security backup of personal data stored in the system. Backups are stored
separately and securely so that the personal data can be restored. Instructions on the deletion of personal
data include the deletion of personal data in backups.
Access rights: Visma ensures that employees only have access to the systems where relevant in order for them to perform their tasks. All employees are bound by Visma's guidelines and rules when accessing and processing personal data and are monitored when accessing client-specific information.
All employees have a unique user name and password. User names and passwords are created and changed according to generally accepted principles. All rejected access attempts are registered. After repeatedly rejected access attempts from the same workstation or with the same user identification, further access attempts are blocked. Successful and unsuccessful access attempts are handled by SIEM (security information and event management).
All employees at Visma who have access to personal data are covered by confidentiality agreements.
Technical Security Surrounding the Signature in Visma Addo.
At Visma our first priority is security. People choose digital signatures for being the most secure type of
electronic signature. Digital signatures differ from a normal handwritten signature, as digital signatures
provide the highest level of assurance with regard to the signers’ identity and the authenticity of the
In order to be valid, either digitally or physically, a signature must meet three basic requirements:
1. Signer authentication
2. Content integrity
This requirement stipulates that Visma must have security for the signer’s identity. Visma provides different authentication methods, such as NemID, SMS code or SITHS to authenticate the signer's identity and demonstrate proof of signing. To further increase security, when a customer uses NemID, the unique PID (Personal Identifier) is also printed on the document, assuring that the signer’s certificate is cryptographically bound to the document.
The signed document will always be blocked from further changes regardless of the signing method and is supplied with a timestamp with a certificate from GlobalSign. All cryptographically signing proofs are
embedded in the PDF, enabling all parties to validate the signing in the future. In Norway and Sweden,
BankID is the most widely used solution, and in Denmark, NemID is the most secure way of assigning a
digital signature to a physical person. These signing methods are all supported by Visma Addo.
Visma Addo is designed to keep the customer's documents secure and to prevent tampering with the
documents. If the document changes after signing, the digital signature is invalidated and the one who opens the document is notified. When a document is signed, a unique Visma Addo identification number is printed on the document and a “checksum” is created based on the document content including the unique identification number.
Non-repudiation can be achieved using one or several of the official public signatures (NemID, BankID, etc.) - either signing directly with a public signature or in combination with other forms of signatures in Visma Addo.
