Switzerland has revised its new data protection law and brought it into line with the European data protection law (EU-DSGVO). The EU would now have to recognise the level of data protection here as equivalent, which is actually already overdue.
After the Federal Council broke off negotiations for a new framework agreement with the EU last Wednesday, the question now arises as to the impact on Swiss data protection. Swiss companies now fear that the EU will refuse recognition. This could, on the one hand, prohibit the processing of customer-related data from the EU and, on the other hand, impose new hurdles.
