The revised Swiss Data Protection Act (DSG) will become effective on September 1, 2023. By this date, companies must have implemented technical and organizational measures to protect personal data following the new legal requirements. Violations could result in severe penalties.

In addition, there is an increasing risk of cyber attacks in which unprotected or inaccurately stored customer and employee data are exploited. That leads to reputational damage and, in the worst case, to the loss of annoyed customers.

Together with our partner krm, we wrote the following article about why software solutions are essential for effectively and efficiently implementing data protection measures. This article was published in issue 11/2022 of Swiss IT Magazine.

Identifying personal data in heterogeneous IT environments

One such application for automating manual processes is our award-winning PID Cockpit. The „PID Cockpit“ is a joint development between Karakun and the Swiss Information Governance Competence Centre (

This AI-based software solution lets users efficiently identify personal data in heterogeneous IT environments. For this purpose, the PID Cockpit can search all data sources whose files can be accessed (directly or via API). It is irrelevant whether the data is structured or unstructured. The system recognizes industry- and company-specific text types when set up correctly. It can be run on local servers or in the cloud, as required.

The benefits for users are simplicity and the associated time and cost savings. Automated, transparent AI processes also minimize errors and make search results reproducible and consistent.
