Below please find the May edition of the BDO "Safe Company" Alert, which discusses the most current and interesting information about anti-money laundering and anti-terrorism (AML) and the scope of cybersecurity and data protection.
This time we would like to draw your attention to the Communication of the General Inspector of Financial Information on the evaluation of information obtained about clients by obliged institutions and actions in case of inability to apply financial security measures. The Communication contains guidance on money laundering risk analysis, which is extremely important from the point of view of obliged entities within the meaning of the AML Act.
However, it seems just as important to us to also discuss some of the provisions of the planned new whistleblower act, an amended draft of which has recently been made available by the Polish legislator.
We have also considered it worthwhile to discuss in more detail the ruling of the Court of Justice of the EU on the protection of personal data and the EU's work on the Digital Services Act (DSA). As always, we have tried to complement the whole with a selection of the most interesting information in brief, among which special attention should be paid to issues related to the use of Kaspersky Lab antivirus software.
We hope you find the following next portion of information contained in our alert useful, helping you efficiently navigate the regulations and trends related to cybersecurity.
We wish you a pleasant reading and in case you need any additional, more detailed information, feel free to contact our firm and experts directly.
