How to get compliant with the Whistleblowing Law

Whistlelink has emerged as a top-ranked platform in a comprehensive assessment of more than 30 leading whistleblowing solutions. The evaluation, conducted by Polish legal data protection and IT security experts, analysed various criteria to determine the most effective, secure, and user-friendly whistleblowing system. Whistlelink’s compliance with regulations and exceptional performance across all parameters has earned us a top-ranking score for being the most user-friendly and reliable solution for organisations of all sizes.  

Thorough evaluation process 

The expert panel developed a set of nine categories and 100 detailed criteria to conduct a reliable survey of the whistleblower solutions. These categories included compliance with legal requirements, data security, ease of use, functionality, accountability, and more. Each criterion was assigned a specific weightage based on its importance, and a scoring system was implemented accordingly. Whistlelink excelled in multiple key areas, earning us the highest score in the ranking of leading whistleblowing solutions.  

Compliance and data security 

Whistlelink demonstrated a strong commitment to compliance with regulations, specifically the provisions of the law on protection of whistleblowers. This criterion comprised 14 sub-criteria, and Whistlelink fulfilled all of them successfully. Furthermore, the platform adhered to GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) compliance, encompassing nine specific criteria. Whistlelink’s dedication to protecting the identity of whistleblowers and third parties involved in the reporting process also contributed significantly to our high ranking. 
 
Our commitment to data security was evident through Whistlelink’s ISO 27001 certification for information security management. With 29 detailed criteria dedicated to data security, our platform proved its robust measures to safeguard sensitive information. Whistlelink offers encrypted, secure communication channels, ensuring that all data transmission remains confidential. Additionally, our platform provides access control features, limiting data access to authorized individuals only. 

User-friendly interface and additional features 

Whistlelink’s intuitive interface and self-configuration capabilities stood out among the evaluated criteria. The user-friendly design allows for effortless navigation, enhancing the overall user experience. Whistlelink also offers customization options, enabling companies to personalize the application according to their specific needs. 
 
The assessment also considered additional features that facilitate the use of the whistleblowing system. Whistlelink excelled in this aspect, providing a mobile version of the application, as well as supporting access facilities for people with disabilities and thereby ensuring inclusivity in the whistleblowing process.  

Enhanced functionality and notification management 

With Whistlelink, organisations benefit from a wide range of features that facilitate the reporting process. Our platform supports multiple communication channels, allowing whistleblowers to report violations in writing or orally (with Voice Scrambling coming soon), and with the ability to attach relevant documents securely. Additionally, Whistlelink automates breach notifications and provides a comprehensive history of operations, ensuring accountability and transparency. 

Furthermore, Whistlelink, as a SaaS service, requires no installation, but we offer the option to export data in popular formats for migration to other applications. 

Whistlelink’s exceptional performance in the comprehensive expert assessment by Polish ODO24 is a testament to our position as a premier whistleblowing solution in the market. With our strong compliance with legal requirements, robust data security measures, user-friendly interface, configuration flexibility and additional features, Whistlelink offers a comprehensive solution for organisations of all sizes. As companies increasingly prioritize ethical practices and the need for effective whistleblowing mechanisms, Whistlelink emerges as a reliable partner in promoting transparency and accountability.  

About ODO 24 and the ranking of leading Whistleblowing Solutions 

Maciej Kaczmarski, President of ODO 24, shares his insights and comments on the importance of whistleblowing solutions: 

– ODO 24 specialises in data protection and information security. Our clients have been asking us for a long time how to comply with whistleblower protection requirements. We do not offer a specific whistleblowing application ourselves, so we figured it would be a good idea to create a ranking of the platforms available on the market. I had previously reviewed a similar ranking of CRM systems and liked the way they were presented. You can see the best offers in one place and make your choice.   

– By reviewing the available applications for whistleblowers, we created a first set of evaluation criteria and, after initial verification, invited specific companies to participate in the first edition of the ranking (in 2022). Our initiative was met with great interest, so we continued our project this year. In the first stage, applications were tested by our experts in legal data protection and IT security. In the second stage, we asked them to fill in an extensive form containing 100 evaluation criteria, which were subject to scoring. Thus, we created our ranking.  

– I hope to continue this project, as it is our ambition to include as many entities as possible and to become a valuable source of information in this area, both for potential customers and for software providers wishing to improve their products.
