Protection of data
and values with the
otris privacy SUITE.
The otris privacy SUITE...
... simplifies the inventory and optimisation of the company's data protection and information security management.

One software, many applications: Data protection and ISMS, internal and external

The otris privacy SUITE consists of the otris specialist solutions for data protection and information security. The two areas of expertise are not congruent, but complement each other on many levels. Ideally, a data protection management system (DSMS) is based on an information security management system (ISMS). The DSMS should extend the ISMS organisationally and technically to include data protection requirements. The otris privacy SUITE enables the operation of both systems on a central platform.

Data protection and information security belong together – most data protectionists and IT security officers agree on this point. Without IT security, effective data protection is not possible. A significant difference, however, is that the focus of IT security is not on the protection of personal data. An ISMS assesses data according to its value for the company. From the perspective of an IT security officer, information/data are assets that must be protected from unauthorised access. The focus in data protection work, on the other hand, is to protect the right to informational self-determination and to fulfil the corresponding legal requirements.

Even though the objects of protection differ, there are many overlaps between ISMS and DSMS in terms of protection goals. Confidentiality, integrity and availability are of paramount importance in both data protection and IT security. And the basis for good data protection is always good IT security. These two specialist areas are therefore combined in the otris privacy SUITE. However, the individual specialist solutions can also be used stand-alone (as individual solutions). Furthermore, the systems are suitable both for internal use within the company and for the tasks of the external data protection officer or the external IT security officer.

Features that distinguish the otris privacy SUITE

User-friendliness. Uniform and simple.

The specialist solutions of the otris privacy SUITE use an identical platform as a technological basis. From the user’s point of view, this has the advantage that the specialist solutions function according to a uniform operating concept. All users benefit from the high level of user-friendliness in the form of wizards, context-sensitive action menus or drag & drop functions. Users who use both the DSMS and the ISMS benefit from the seamless application within the suite.

Scalability. Adjust scope.

You choose which solution components of the otris privacy SUITE you need. You can combine the specialist solutions for DSMS and ISMS with each other, as well as select a software edition within the specialist solutions and add functional extensions (e.g. reporting workflow or enquiry workflow). If you have additional requirements, otris consulting will customise your solution.

Licence model. Scale and sublet.

You can not only easily add or cancel user licences, but also sublet the DSMS or ISMS you have created. Subletting is an attractive business model, especially for external DPOs / ISBs: the customer rents the system configured individually for him from his consultant and can operate it on his own. The flexible licensing model also makes it possible to book different numbers of licences for the two specialised solutions.

„In close cooperation with otris, we have simplified the operational work in data protection.“

Well advised by independent experts

As an experienced software manufacturer, otris software AG supports its customers before, during and after the introduction of a system. However, otris does not offer specialist advice in the areas of data protection and information security. If you require specialist support, we recommend independent experts with whom we work and who are very familiar with otris privacy.

Technical support includes, in particular, legal and organisational advice as well as concrete operational work in the areas of data protection and information security. External experts offer a wide range of services in both specialist areas – from taking over the entire DSMS or ISMS to supporting the internal officer in selected areas.

The external DPOs / ISBs use otris privacy and provide you, for example, with best practice tips on how to optimally enter data and information into otris privacy. We would like to introduce you to some of the external consultancies. For specific information on the consulting services, please refer to the respective company presentation. If you are interested in a specialist consultation, please contact the named contact person directly.

    Whether customer, employee, patient or client data: Every organisation works with data that is subject to, for example, the General Data Protection Regulation, the Federal Data Protection Act, church data protection or country-specific regulations. This can result in the obligation to appoint a data protection officer in writing.

ecoprotec supports the organisation in fulfilling the obligations resulting from the legal requirements. We provide the external data protection officer or support your internal DPO in carrying out his duties. We attach importance to the practical and process-oriented implementation of data protection requirements.
