The provisions in these acts stipulate the obligation to establish security mechanisms designed to ensure the security of information transmission channels, to minimise the risk of data corruption and unauthorized access and to prevent leakage of unpublished information.
Health service providers must also develop an IT security concept and document data security measures. This documentation must show that both access to and disclosure of the data is correct and that the data is not accessible to unauthorized persons.
In accordance with the Telecommunications Act, operators of public communications services are also subject to breach notice in the event of a violation of the protection of personal data. The breach notice shall be made to the data protection authority. In the event that persons are affected in their privacy or the personal data itself by the violation, the notice shall be made to the person concerned.
