German Federal IT security authority publishes guidelines for AI developers

The German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) is already providing support with a whole series of statements on the subject of artificial intelligence (partly even in English).

It is therefore all the more gratifying that the BSI has in the meantime also addressed the question of how developers can practically protect machine learning systems from the most relevant threats and take adequate protective measures in a guideline.

Whistleblower protection and the right of access on a collision course – challenges in the parallel application of whistleblower protection and Art. 15 GDPR

The enactment and applicability of the German implementation law (“German Whistleblower Protection Act”) for the Whistleblowing Directive (Directive (EU) 2019/1937) is in sight even though the law was not passed yet because the “Bundesrat” did not agree to the text adopted by the “Bundestag”. It might still take some time until the two parliaments agree on a final text.

This also means that the legal obligation to set up an internal reporting channel is getting closer for very many German companies (all with generally at least 250 employees).
