The data protection in Switzerland and GRC: our quick focus on FAPD (LPD) Ordinance

On our previous posts, we took a look firstly at the data protection in Switzerland. We secondly compared the GRC approach for Swiss organizations across the GPDR and LPD contexts.

Today we will focus on a particular aspect of the Swiss laws on privacy: the FADP Ordinance
On 23th June 2021, the Federal Council of Switzerland launched the consultation on LPD-DSG-LPD Ordinance (OLPD). It will last until 14th October 2021.

The main goal is the adaptation of the executive provisions contained in this ordinance (OLPD) relating to the Federal Act on Data Protection (LPD/DSG/LPD).

In particular, the OLPD will provide clarifications on some important data protection aspects such as:
  • minimum of data security requirements;
  • information obligations;
  • right of access to the data;
  • notification of data security breaches/violations;
  • communication of personal data abroad;
  • etc.

The Federal Act on Data Protection (as well as the OLPD) is expected to come into effect in the second half of 2022.

For Swiss organizations there will be a lot of challenges to face on privacy protection.This is the reason why we will focus together on this topic

On 6th and 7th October we will held an itSMF class on GRC and Data protection with the partnership of MGS. 

In conclusion, to know more details on this class as well as relevant news, you can just read our blog as well as follow us on our social channels.
