Managing Privacy and Data Security - Data Protection Officer (DPO-HSG)

Managing Privacy and Data Security – Data Protection Officer 

Data protection matters have become a regular topic, and for reasons of liability also a relevant one for SMEs as well as for executive committees in big companies. Therefore it is important to understand data protection in a comprehensive and integrated way, i.e. not only from a legal but also from a management and technological point of view. This also includes securing data as an asset and guaranteeing data governance and security (for further information refer to the “modules”).

Due to the robustness of technical advancement and social change in response to digital transformation, the security of personal data is now a serious challenge worldwide. Combined with the increased data privacy demands of individuals, many Swiss companies acknowledge data privacy as a competitive advantage. The jeopardising of sensitive personal data and also of business data such as financial information, intellectual property information and other privileged information has become a challenge for all types of business.
