Preparing for the new data protection law – the revised DPA, but above all the European General Data Protection Regulation – is currently occupying a large number of companies. To facilitate the implementation work, David Rosenthal from the law firm Homburger AG has developed a self-assessment tool. The tool is edited by him together with David Vasella and is available for free use (according to the license conditions) at www.dsat.ch available.
From the announcement at www.dsat.ch:
After an in-depth field test, the first set of forms of the Data Privacy Self-Assessment Tool (DSAT) was published today. It can be downloaded via downloads and is free of charge. DSAT helps companies in Switzerland to prepare for the GDPR and the revised DSG (basis: draft of the Federal Council). Unlike the other questionnaires and tools, it not only raises the relevant points for assessing legality, but immediately provides the possible answers, shows the possible measures and goes much deeper. Further forms on other aspects will follow continuously.
DSAT was developed by David Rosenthal of the law firm Homburger, and is edited by him together with David Vasella of the law firm Walder Wyss. It is aimed at data protection experts who can use DSAT in their work, as well as interested others who want to check what action they need to take, if possible without external consultants. For this purpose, Form C.1 will be particularly helpful, which can be used to determine whether and with which data processing operations a company in Switzerland is subject to the DSGVO, which will apply from May 25, 2018.
