“Data storage for GDPR”: More security thanks to access protection in the flash memory


Bronschhofen, Switzerland – GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) places high demands on the storage of private data. To be GDPR-compliant, embedded systems that store customer data, such as medical devices, often have to be retrofitted. 

As a cost-effective alternative to expensive hardware upgrades, Swissbit offers an effective and surprisingly simple solution: Flash memory with integrated security functions offer highly configurable access protection for stored data, encryption, the option to sign the data and to document memory usage through an audit trail.


 Hubertus Grobbel, Head of Business Unit Security, explains how a commercial camera can be converted into a secure storage medium for the encryption of video recordings: “Secure video recordings: The Swissbit solution”.
