Brief overview of the new data protection law in Switzerland

The new data protection law in Switzerland, called DPA (Swiss data protection law), has been strengthened to meet current data protection challenges. This law aims to guarantee the security and confidentiality of the personal data of Swiss citizens. Here are some key points:

  1. Strengthening protection: The DPA strengthens the protection of personal data in Switzerland, granting individuals greater control over their personal information.
  2. Data transfer : The law also regulates the transfer of data to other countries, ensuring that Swiss data is protected when transferred abroad.
  3. Corporate Responsibilities: Companies are required to adhere to stricter data protection standards and put in place adequate security measures to prevent data breaches.
  4. GDPR compliance: Although Switzerland is not part of the European Union, the DPA aligns with many principles of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), making it easier to exchange data with the EU.
  5. Sanctions: The LPD provides for severe sanctions for non-compliance, including significant fines.

The Swiss DPA is an example of the adaptation of data protection laws to new digital realities and the growing importance of individual privacy. It aims to maintain a balance between the protection of individual rights and the needs of businesses in terms of data collection and processing.

Transmission of data when applying for private credit

Lica collaborates with several financial providers to process credit applications. In this context, it complies with strict protocols to guarantee the confidentiality and security of the data transmitted. Customers are informed of these processes and give their consent before any transmission.

First and foremost, when an individual or company submits a funding request, it is common for them to disclose sensitive information. This may include, for example, financial details, bank statements or other personal data. Faced with this, it is imperative, even crucial, that this transmission takes place in a secure environment in order to avoid any possibility of leak or unwanted interception. In addition, to reinforce this security, authentication mechanisms are judiciously established. For what ? To ensure that only authorized actors have privileged access to this valuable data. At the end of the day, the financing applicant must be able to count on data transmission that inspires confidence and peace of mind.
