WhistBoard is a cloud-based application specially designed for whistleblowers. It allows whistleblowers to report and manage irregularities, in particular to conduct and document investigations. WhistBoard is the answer to the challenges resulting from the so-called Whistleblowing Directive.

Yes, a whistleblower can make a report in a fully anonymous manner. WhistBoard guarantees this anonymity by implementing a number of IT safeguards and a simple mechanism for making reports.

First of all, WhistBoard does not require the whistleblower to log into any system. While accepting a report from a whistleblower in anonymous mode, the application does not require any contact data from him/her. If the whistleblower decides to make a report in the form of a file (e.g. pdf), the application will clean it of the so-called metadata allowing to identify the author of the file. Thus, persons managing the report do not have any possibilities of breaking the anonymity of the whistleblower.

On the technical side, the application does not monitor the whistleblower’s movements on the site, and the encrypted server guarantees the security of the data collected within the notifications.
