Data Protection and Privacy

At the latest since the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force, the legally compliant handling of personal data, in particular that of employees, customers and business partners, has been of considerable importance for every company.

The correct handling of personal data not only creates trust, but also protects your company from severe sanctions in the form of fines and damage payments.

We offer comprehensive advice on all aspects of data protection. This ranges from the preparation of documents relevant to data protection law (e.g. data protection declarations, consents and contracts with contract processors), the implementation of your business models in accordance with data protection law (e.g. in the area of marketing or outsourcing of data), the installation of access controls or video surveillance, to representation before the Data Protection Authority (e.g. in the event of a data breach).

We also carry out tailor-made in-house employee training.
