Swiss companies must act ahead of GDPR

Every company in Switzerland processes personal data. Also most Swiss companies bear a reference to the EU, by virtue of e.g. rendering services or offering goods to EU citizens, having a branch in the EU and processing personal data in this context. In such cases the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will also apply to Swiss companies.

In parallel the Swiss Data Protection Act (DPA) is being revised which will lead to increased duties of entities processing personal data and will implement a much stricter sanction regime for cases of violations.

The NKF Technology team is holding a series of events covering this topic from 23 November. In Q&A sessions lasting 60 minutes, the new data protection legislation in Switzerland and GDRP will be addressed briefly and discussed.
