The employees who comprise the VPV’s field staff use convertible tablets so customers can conveniently sign their signatures at home directly on the monitor. This method has proven successful—and that’s why the VPV ordered more than 1,000 new devices to coincide with a changeover to Windows 7. Self-encrypting SSD hard drives were chosen because they facilitate the fastest possible data access and encryption.
The VPV reaffirmed its commitment to data protection in 2013, when it became party to the data protection code of the GDV. The VPV publicly pledged to uphold the rules of conduct for data processing in the insurance industry. To comply with the strict guidelines for the protection of stored and transmitted data, Winfried Kohles, who heads the VPV’s computer centre, sought a secure and easily administered IT solution.
