GDPR and security measures

Is it allowed, according to DSGVO, to send pay slips by mail internally in the company? Or has to be e.g. to be encrypted with Winrar?

The EU GDPR does not provide a description of the methods to be used to secure the personal data in transit, it only mentioned that the security measures need to be adequate. This obligation is expressed in general terms but does indicate some enhanced measures, such as encryption, that may be needed.

In your case, I would suggest encrypting the email and its content and sending the password via a different channel such as SMS.
