Impaired information flows

“You have to be adaptable and open to adjustments”, said Simonetta Sommaruga, President of the Swiss Confederation, on August 12, 2020 at the press conference held by the Federal Council [1]. This not only applies to combating the COVID-19 pandemic, but also to combating money laundering. We’ve identified a few issues with the false report about an alleged coronavirus death [2] which are also relevant for compliance.

Frequent causes of impaired information flows:

  • No effective monitoring mechanisms
  • Organizational boundaries hinder information flows
  • Responsibilities are unclear
  • An incomplete view of the situation; no-one has an end-to-end view of the entire process
  • Forms that can be filled out incorrectly and lead to incorrect data.

Complete Revision of the Federal Data Protection Act

Complete Revision of the Federal Data Protection Act: „As of 15th September 2017, draft and report for a completely revised Federal Data Protection Act is public. In a first step parliament and the people agreed to adaptations in order to be compliant with EU law. The second part of the revision is debated by the parliament since September 2019. Data Protection is to be increased by giving people more control over their private data as well as reinforcing transparency regarding the handling of confidential data.”
