Procurement / hardware and software

The procurement of hardware and software basically takes place at the request of the person / department who decides on the processing by the central IT procurement. Already with the selection of hard and software the principle of the guarantee of data protection by technology design and by privacy-friendly presettings is considered as a supporting criterion. If a new procedure for the processing of personal data is to be introduced with the procurement, the data protection officer must be informed in good time in advance by the requesting body. Procurement will only take place after DSB has given its opinion. The DSB advises on whether the implementation of a privacy impact assessment is required. Private hardware and software may not be used to process personal data. The use of private hardware and software at home and abroad (eg private notebooks) requires the approval of the IT department on a case-by-case basis. The IT department maintains a list of the hardware and application programs used.
