In the Reliable Worker service, the users can create a digital CV, where they can collect verified information concerning themselves from various sources based on MyData principles. Jobseekers can supplement their profile manually and share it with the employment services of their choice.
What is MyData?
Based on MyData principles, each person should be able to manage information concerning themselves, i.e. to
decide to whom it is shared and for which purpose. MyData means that everyone has the right and an actual opportunity to access information concerning themselves, to use this information freely and transfer it to third parties, as well as to permit the transfer of this information from one service to another. The aim is to enable a smoother transfer of data between services.
What does granting an access mean?
Granting an access means that each individual can consent to sharing information concerning himself or herself with the parties of his or her choice. The process requires an operator, who is responsible for managing the consents and ensuring that only the party who has been granted an access will be able to access the information. Cancellation of the consent, i.e. that the party is no longer able to access the information, is an important element of the process.
MyData as a facilitator
Based on MyData principles, each individual must be able to grant the services of his or her choice access to information concerning himself or herself. To make this as easy as possible, it must be able to grant the access digitally. Another aim of MyData is to enable the creation of services that are based on the granting of access to and the easier transfer of data.
Aiming at open data sources
For the personal data of everyone, i.e. MyData, to be available, it is important to make data sources support the sharing of data based on a consent. This requires shared rules and uniform methods for giving a consent and implementing the data transfer to make the process of granting an access and sharing personal data consistent.
We want to do this work of opening up the data sources together with the employment ecosystem. We at Vastuu Group cannot solve this alone. However, together with the entire network, we can make a big difference. Our operating model is as follows:
- We will determine which kind of services and functions are needed.
- We will determine which data sources are needed for the purpose.
- We will determine where this data can be utilised.
- We will determine how the data can be transferred, subject to a consent.
- We will determine how the data can be utilised subject to a granted access.
- We will pilot the granting of an access to and utilising the data with our partners by using a selected user group.
Vastuu Group is the first MyData operator in Finland. The operator will be responsible for managing the consents and for ensuring that only the parties to whom a consent has been given will be able to access the data. The MyDataShare service of Vastuu Group has been created for managing the consents. The service enables persons to share their data between services subject to their consent. MyDataShare Wallet is a tool where the users can see and manage all consents that they have given and to grant or cancel consents.
Go to the demo version of MyDataShare to see how MyDataShare Wallet works in practice.
