According to the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) all companies and organisations that collect, process or use personal data must ensure the protection of such data at all times.
Visulox ensures seamless entry and access control for data storage, processing and file transfer.
Except in the case of small companies, a data protection officer is to be appointed to ensure unauthorised access of the data does not occur.
In appendix § 9 of the BDSG , the law stipulates that in automated processing or usage of personal data, suitable, documented IT measures must be taken. In addition to entry, admission and access control, this also includes precautionary measures for the secure collection and forwarding of data and the prevention of, destruction of, or loss of data.
The requirements defined in the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) by the regulatory authorities, demand that all steps in the processing chain of sensitive data can be verified and suitably demonstrated. Internal and external users, all processes involving personal data must be traceable at all times. Breaches of the law not only entail penalties but also a loss of reputation and trust which can have serious consequences. In contrast, companies that demonstrate, in a data protection audit, that their IT processes are compliant with the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) can strengthen their market position.
