Sweden’s Largest Local Employer Chooses Omada for GDPR Compliant Management of Users and Access to Data

Copenhagen, Denmark, 22 November 2017

Omada, the market-leading provider of solutions for advanced identity management and access governance, has been chosen to implement an identity and access governance solution for Swedish public organization Vastra Gotalandsregionen (VGR), providing the healthcare provider with GDPR compliant management of users and access to data. 

Vastra Gotalandsregionen (VGR), the regional government of Western Sweden, which provides an umbrella of services ranging from healthcare, public transport, regional branding, and cultural services within arts and cultural entertainment, has 53,500 employees and is thereby the largest local employer in Sweden.

Combining Sweden’s regulatory compliance with GDPR needs in one solution

Vastra Gotalandsregionen has many years’ experience with identity and access management and sought to strengthen its governance even further. Increasing regulatory demands and IT security threats demand a stronger response, and because of this, the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the high Swedish standards for regulatory compliance are particularly in focus.

Securing low operational cost through well proven technology stack

Vastra Gotalandsregionen has a strong Microsoft infrastructure competence, which fits well with the Omada architecture, built on the Microsoft stack.

This in turn helps to secure low operational cost and reduces the implementation project risk.

Govern partners’ access to data 

Collaboration with external partners and government authorities is important for open organizations such as Vastra Gotalandsregionen, hence being able to provide safe and secure partner access to data is essential. 

Solid governance for managing external access to sensitive data is part of the solution for Vastra Gotalandsregionen, where there is the option to upgrade to a consumer identity and access management solution down the line, for an additional 1.6 million citizen users. 

Vastra Gotalandsregionen operates 17 hospitals, 121 healthcare centers, and 170 public dental care centers and provides public transportation through its transport company Västtrafik. VGR is the second largest public transport company in Sweden, operating 2,700 buses, trains, trams and ferries.
