Ensuring customers are GDPR & ISO27001 compliant with «myGWF»

When GDPR came into force in May 2018, many requirements had to be met by companies to demonstrate full compliance with the regulation. For the EU utilities market, in particular, it stipulates that all meter data must be encrypted and that each meter requires an individual encryption key.

At GWF MessSysteme AG, we obviously want to offer our partners and customers added value in this specific context. As such, we have launched a specially designed platform called «myGWF». The handling of remote keys is now fully automated and entirely separate from FTP/SFTP/FTPS or email exchange.

Advantages of the myGWF platform…

  • › Immediate access to all keys
  • › Management & download of your own keys
  • › Transfer of keys from trade partners to your customers
  • › GDPR and ISO 27001 compliant


Our solution with myGWF  is therefore not only a Declaration of Conformity from GWF MessSysteme AG for key transfer but also for all our customers. All the keys that our customers pass on or our trade partners hand over to their customers are fully compliant with both regulations.

GDPR has not yet come into force for utilities in Switzerland or for building technology. However, this is planned, in a somewhat modified form, over the next 18-24 months.
