Information security and privacy management

At Techstep, we have a strong commitment to privacy, security and transparency. We are currently establishing a management system based on the internationally recognised standard ISO/IEC 27001. The aim is to further increase security awareness in the organisation, and that appropriate technical, organisational, personnel and physical security controls are in place. The management system formally implements a systematic risk-based approach to information security and will include all processes related to privacy and GDPR.

Data privacy through GDPR

We work in compliance with national laws of the countries in which we operate, as well as with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). In addition, principles from application software security are applied to ensure Techstep designs secure products.

Responsible supply chain

Third party management

Our suppliers and partners are an important part of our value chain, as they provide us with the products and services we need, to deliver our solutions to our customers. Our relationship with our third parties also brings responsibilities, such as shared concern for the environmental impact of our supply chain and potential social and compliance risks if these factors are not managed appropriately.

Our Supplier Code of Conduct sets out our expectations of suppliers, which are based on the principles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the International Labour Organisation (ILO) Core Conventions and UN Global Compact’s 10 principles for sustainable development.

Techstep is subject to the Transparency Act, and we are committed to conducting due diligence in accordance with the principles set forth in the UN Guiding Principles for Business and Human Rights as well as the OECD Guidelines for Responsible Business Conduct. We have ongoing work to adapt our guidelines and processes for procurement and supplier management to ensure compliance.

Ethical business conduct

Techstep’s commitment to business ethics and compliance with international regulations and internal policies is anchored in our code of conduct.

Our code of conduct provides the framework for employee’s involvement in ensuring the group operates in an ethical, sustainable and socially responsible manner. It specifies the main principles that apply for everyone associated with Techstep and is intended to guide daily business activities and to be integrated into critical processes, practices, activities and decision-making across the group.

Reporting concerns

Techstep wants a low threshold for reporting concerns if you think something is wrong. If you are unsure whether your conduct or the conduct of someone else might breach our Code of Conduct, you can contact our compliance function at compliance@techstep.no.

We have also established a third-party operated channel for discrete and confidential handling of concerns. Our Code of Conduct contains information on how to report.
