Case Study: “Autismus verstehen e.V.“
The German association “Autismus verstehen e.V.“ is concerned with the situation of people with autism in society, and how to improve this situation. This is being realized by facilitating the co-operational work between people with autism, relatives, experts and third parties with an interest for autism spectrum disorders. As a result, a range of counseling services for people with autism at all ages, as well as for those working with people with autism on a private or professional basis can be provided. Furthermore, enables the association the provision of demand-oriented sponsorship offers, as well as the bundling and provision of information about autism.
Boxcryptor has been known to Mr. Haussmann, data protection officer of the association, for 3 years from his private use of it. Since it is crucially important for the people living with autism and those surrounding them that the data collected by the association can only be accessed by authorized persons, the decision was made to use Boxcryptor to protect this data in the organization as well.
Boxcryptor is now being employed by the board of directors and the employees of the competence center. Each user needs to be able to access the pool of data from their momentary location at the time they require access. This is possible by utilizing a cloud provider for storing the data. Boxcryptor helps to comply with the requirements of the GDPR. Because of the encryption provided by Boxcryptor, it is possible to guarantee that authorized people only, may access the data. Furthermore, only encrypted data is transferred from the local device to the cloud (end-to-end encryption). The encrypted file sharing service Whisply is particularly interesting for the association. This tool allows to account for the increasingly important concerns of data protection by no longer sending highly sensitive personal information unencrypted via email. Since the receiver of an encrypted Whisply file does not need any software to decrypt it, except for a browser, transmitting personal data is secure and very easy.
