Here's how Boxcryptor supports the work of Betriebsrat

Indépendance de la plateforme et du stockage

Boxcryptor fonctionne sur les systèmes d'exploitation Windows et macOS, ainsi que sur les ordinateurs de bureau, les ordinateurs portables, les smartphones et les tablettes. Cela permet une flexibilité maximale.

Flux de travail sans faille

L'utilisation du stockage en nuage chiffré est intuitive et harmonieuse pour votre flux de travail. Il suffit d'ouvrir, de modifier et d'enregistrer les données comme auparavant.

Cryptage des noms de fichiers

Le cryptage du nom du fichier empêche toute conclusion sur le contenu du fichier. Avec Boxcryptor, vous protégez non seulement le contenu sensible, mais aussi la structure du dossier de données.

Files that have been securely encryped are no longer subject to the GDPR. Thanks to Boxcryptor, files with personal data can also be stored in the cloud without any problems.

Independent data storage

Securing data and exchanging files in the works council independently of the employer is a requirement we know from many of our customers. End-to-end encryption can help you achieve this goal since user management allows clear control over who has access to which folders. This means that confidential documents are securely encrypted and you can focus on what's important.

Data protection in the works council

Confidential communication within the works council and between individual council members and employees must be guaranteed at all times. Boxcryptor supports you with end-to-end encryption for over 30 cloud providers and numerous other storage types, such as USB sticks, NAS, or file servers. Thanks to file name encryption, you also disguise the folder structure for outsiders and prevent conclusions about the content of the encrypted files. With our add-on for Microsoft Teams, you can also transmit encrypted messages and files within the popular collaboration tool.

Responsibility according to the GDPR

In order to safeguard employee interests, it is necessary for the Betriebsrat to process personal data. This results in a responsibility within the meaning of the GDPR and the new BDSG. However, data that is protected with end-to-end encryption is no longer subject to the GDPR - even if the plain text contains personal data. Encryption therefore provides effective relief in the works council's everyday work.

What data may the works council access?

The works council generally doesn't have unrestricted access to all employee data. However, the employer is obligated to provide access the data that is necessary for the fulfillment of Betriebsrat's tasks. This results in a complex structure of access rights. The user management in Boxcryptor makes it possible to map these requirements, so that confidential material remains confidential.

What co-determination rights apply to data protection?

The works council is subject to co-determination whenever technology is introduced that could theoretically be used to surveil employees. Together with the employer, the works council draws up a works agreement that regulates how the new technology is handled. In the case of software, for example, this includes settings and analyses. They also jointly determine how future updates will be handled.

Votre nouvel espace de travail sécurisé : Boxcryptor

The Boxcryptor drive works and looks like any other folder on your machine. Si vos employés travaillent avec Dropbox, par exemple, ils sauront utiliser Boxcryptor. La seule différence : la présence de fichiers cryptés identifiés par un symbole vert, et un niveau de sécurité plus élevé. Also, it's more secure.
