Data protection

Since May 2018, the European General Data Protection Regulation (EU DS-GVO/GDPR) has been in effect for all companies in the EU, regardless of size, business type and visibility in society. The consequences of not complying with this binding regulation are, in comparison to earlier regulations, very serious and can amount to EUR 20 million or up to four percent of the global company income. Many companies, who wish to avoid these high penalties, would rather err on the side of caution and put too many measures in place.

In the worst-case scenario, these measures harm company business more than actually protecting the personal data of those effected. A proper understanding of the reasons for the respective rules and regulations is therefore crucial to allow for an informed choice of the appropriate measures. It is also especially important to make sure that your business processes continue to run efficiently, while remaining in complete compliance with the EU DS-GVO regulations.
