Who is a whistleblower?

Whistleblowers are individuals who report irregularities and abuses within an organisation. They are usually employees who are a key source of information about existing or potential problems.

What obligations do employers have in connection with whistleblower protection?

Both private and public entities will be required to have internal solutions (whistleblowing systems) for reporting irregularities safely, confidentially or anonymously. Not only must safe whistleblowing channels be established, but also employees must be effectively made aware of how they work. Moreover, whistleblowing must be handled by an appropriate, independent and competent entity within the organisation and in accordance with legal regulations. This means that the whistleblower should receive feedback within set time limits and the employer must take follow-up measures (investigative and remedial) and keep a record of reports.

Whistleblowing tool supporting employers

A whistleblowing system is, however, not only a legal obligation. If structured and promoted correctly, it can have a very positive impact on the quality of reports, and thus the safety of the organisation and management. Such system can also improve organisational culture. The platform ensures data security and confidentiality, but also facilitates the examination of reports.

    Head of DZP Compliance

    “The ability to detect problems early gives companies the opportunity to react rapidly and to nip problems in the bud.”

    “A whistleblowing process will only be successful if whistleblowers have confidence in the security of the process and the information flow. The public administration and private companies will be able to treat these solutions as a real element of prevention and protection of the organisation’s values.”

  • Marek Laskowski

    Director of DZP Compliance IT

    “In August 2021, Microsoft repelled the largest DDoS attack in history with a total of 2.4 terabits per second.”

    “No company would be able to cope with an attack on this scale. Microsoft technology guarantees us the highest level of application security. That is why we are using security mechanisms, including the encryption contained in the Azure Security Center service.”
