Data protection

Data protection requirements have become more complex for businesses thanks to two regulations which went into effect simultaneously on May 25th, 2018 – the European General Data Protection Regulation and the German Federal Data Protection Act. At the same time, stricter measures and higher fees are spurring urgent action by companies.

We can provide you with comprehensive, easy-to-understand advising. Whether you have questions on ensuring the rights of data subjects, documentary obligations, data security, or protecting employee data – we assess the current internal solution and clarify whether additional data protection measures are needed, and if so, which ones, to fulfill the requirements of the GDPR and BDSG. In the course of our review, we intensively address the legal, technical and content-related context to help you implement required measures.

Our experts review your principles, processes and organizational measures in accordance with the EU General Data Protection Regulation and German Federal Data Protection Act pursuant to IDW PH 9.860.1, giving you the security and reliability you need – which are essential for good cooperation and business relationships. Furthermore, we provide you with suggestions for ongoing monitoring and improvement.
