Inside IT has today 28.9.2022 published an interview with Adrian Lobsiger, titled “Edöb: “If authorities only rely on private expert opinions, they can get a bloody nose”. The lead of the article is as follows:
The Federal Data Protection Commissioner criticizes law firms that promise authorities security when using US cloud services. In an interview, Adrian Lobsiger describes his view.
In addition to the cloud issue, however, the interview also covers other topics, such as the role of the FDPIC under the revised DPA:
You will also have to act ex officio under the new data protection law. At the same time, many more cases will come your way, as some restrictions will no longer apply.
Yes, in the future we will no longer be able to limit our supervision to systemically relevant violations. We will now be able to issue rulings and stop data processing in the event of a violation of the law. This will speed up our interventions, but they will also involve more formal procedures: For example, the data subjects must be heard earlier. I’m afraid we’ll hit a wall despite the additional posts. But we are doing everything we can to fulfill all services.
Yesterday Tuesday, the FDPIC also commented on its own site on the “Topic Oracle: Tracking technologies encroach on the privacy rights of Internet users” expressed.
Also today the Republic a contribution by Adrienne Fiechter to the Bundescloud with the title “The Federal Chancellery creates facts in the cloud question“published a report criticizing the fact that the Federal Chancellery signed the contracts with the cloud providers even though proceedings are pending in this connection and even though there is a question as to whether there is a legal basis for the outsourcing (see also here). The latter issue is being dealt with by the National Council’s Business Audit Committee (GPK).
