Data protection

The protection of personal data is becoming increasingly important, and not just after numerous security incidents in business, healthcare, public institutions and administration. The EU General Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR) has also ensured a number of additional requirements and tightening of existing data protection law, so that many companies, authorities and other institutions are faced with a mountain of requirements that in many cases are difficult to manage economically and technically. In order to ensure and further develop data protection, for example, the following are required

  • to fulfil comprehensive documentation tasks,
  • introduce or expand an appropriate risk management system,
  • define and implement technical and organisational measures,
  • Carry out consultations with data protection authorities or
  • Prepare immediate measures in the event of security incidents and implement them at very short notice if necessary.

To this end, we take into account legal requirements such as the EU Data Protection Regulation, the IT Security Act, the Federal Data Protection Act as well as national and international standards such as MaRisk, TISAX or ISO27001. In addition, we can draw on extensive expertise in IT security, IT forensics, IT compliance or IT project management tasks. In this way, we combine IT competence and data protection in an economically sensible way.
