Verisec extends the management team with the Director of IT operations

Press release

As of September 5th, IT security company Verisec has expanded its management team with Nina Vallioniemi who has served as Director of IT Operations in Verisec since January 2018. As the Freja eID cloud service grows, the issue of IT operations becomes critical and should therefore also be handled at management level.

Nina Vallioniemi has long experience of being responsible for the operation of large-scale services. Before joining Verisec, she was Cloud Operations Manager for the Nordic and Baltic countries at Verifone, the payment service company, where she was responsible for mission-critical payment systems.

At Verisec, Nina Vallioniemi is responsible for the operation of the eID-service Freja eID, but also for the company’s other operated services. In connection with Nina Vallioniemi becoming part of the management team, she also becomes a so called “person in leadership position” under the EU Market Abuse Regulation (MAR) and is thus also covered by the regulatory framework applicable to management people.

Johan Henrikson, CEO Verisec, comments:
”Now that Freja eID+ is a quality-labelled Swedish e-ID, incorporated into “Valfrihetssystem 2017” and prepared for connection to the public identification federation Swedish Connect, we can easily say that we conduct community-critical infrastructure with the service. It is then a natural step to raise operational issues at the highest management level in the company. Nina has been working on these issues within Verisec for almost a year, and with her long experience of mission-critical systems, we are confident when we are going to scale up Freja eID to a large number of users and services.”
