Digital whistleblower systems have now established themselves as best practice, as they have many advantages for the whistleblower as well as for the recipient when handling cases. We offer you a central, secure, EU-compliant and GDPR-compliant platform for whistleblowers. Whistleblowers can provide information on suspected cases without exposing themselves to the risk of reprisals. The platform anonymizes the request, but enables the flow of communication between the parties. We provide an anonymous response email address for every request.
Ombudsperson and compliance officer
An ombudsperson acts as an independent body to whom whistleblowers can turn. As an intermediary, this person ensures confidentiality in communication between the whistleblower and the company. For whistleblowers and for you as the company concerned, an external ombudsperson offers the advantage that they are professionally obliged to maintain confidentiality and do not have to disclose any information in the context of investigations and legal disputes. We are your contact if you would like to appoint an ombudsperson for your whistleblower system. We ensure that notices are processed efficiently and with legal competence.
As a compliance officer, we also take on the implementation, administration and control of compliance management.
With a technical solution alone, you cannot meet the requirements of the EU Whistleblower Directive and the Whistleblower Protection Act, because you have to give the whistleblower the opportunity to provide information orally and, if necessary, in a personal meeting. To deal with notes and to process them, you need know-how and experience that a tool alone cannot offer.We support you in introducing a tailor-made and legally compliant whistleblower system in your organization and are at your side from the technical solution through the investigation to the processing of received information.

(EU directive, requirements for companies in the financial services sector)
- Mitigation of actual or potential violations
You have the opportunity to counteract developments that are harmful to the company at an early stage and thus avoid unnecessary scandals, penalties and loss of reputation.

The introduction of a whistleblower system can be an expression of good corporate governance and thus the promotion of a corporate culture characterized by integrity.
