Data is everywhere today. It can be as simple as storing your customers name and address or storing your employee’s birthdate. Storing or transferring this data is likely to be subject to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) or the Swiss Data Protection Act (DPA) depending on where you, your customer or your employee is located. Infringements can lead to reputational damage or fines as high as CHF 24 mio or 4% of the world turnover. It is therefore important to be aware of your obligations and make sure you comply.
