«Data protection is a matter of trust – and a matter for the boss»

Welcome to the latest edition of Disclose! It’s dedicated to an issue that influences every click in your private and business life: data protection.

The current data protection legislation has emerged against the backdrop of exploding data, more ways of processing it, and greater fears about the future. The new rules call for greater transparency, clearer sanctions and a better flow of data. For your business this means basically more compliance.

Find out direct from our experts about the implications of data protection for banking client secrecy, the pharma industries and Swiss SMEs. What’s clear is that data protection is becoming a matter of trust – which means it’s not merely another obstacle, but an enormous opportunity.

In the Update section we talk about our practical experience with the new auditor’s report and explain how the IASB intends to make financial statements more relevant and meaningful. And we’ll be keeping you up to date on the latest developments around the federal government’s Tax Proposal 17.

I wish you revealing reading!
