In the new DPA, the fine limit was increased to CHF 250’000 and the punishable offences were significantly expanded.
In contrast to the EU GDPR, whose fines are directed at companies, fines can only be imposed on natural persons under the DPA.
Your employees who process personal customer data, for example, are permanently at risk of being fined due to “processing errors”.
Have you introduced an internal data protection knowledge management system in your company, so that
– your employees are aware of the provisions of the Data Protection Act
– their special requirements and
– the effects on their work activities
are comprehensively informed.
A data protection knowledge management system and training systems for self-study are of great benefit.
