Industry 4.0, Big Data, Internet of Things (IoT), cloud computing or social media: personal data and the usage of personal data have become the most important element of many business models. This means that companies need to find their way around the conflict between their business interests and the legal requirements, by ensuring their data protection is very well organised. In today's business world, compliance with the statutory provisions and internal company guidelines is becoming increasingly important. The persons responsible are not only required by law to ensure that there are no violations of the law from within the company. Business partners, customers and staff members also expect the company to conduct itself in a legally compliant manner, both internally and externally. It is not without reason that companies view compliance and data protection as important areas of risk management which are relevant from an economic, legal and tax perspective. This concerns not only the protection of business and trade secrets, know-how or critical data, but in particular the protection of personal data.
