Industry 4.0, Big Data, car data, Internet of Things (IoT), cloud computing, smart home or e-health: personal data and the way it is being used is becoming an increasingly important part of existing or completely new business areas. Compliance with and the violation of data protection laws are thus increasingly becoming the focus of public attention. 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. Our pragmatic and solution-oriented team, which specialises in data protection law, can help you to ensure that this succeeds.
The processing of personal data is highly regulated. In addition to the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the new German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG-neu), which has been amended to accord with EU law, sector-specific laws, such as the German Telecommunications Act (TKG) or the German Act Against Unfair Competition (UWG), regulate how personal data is handled. Compliance and liability risks must be considered and safeguarded with regard to the exploitation of personal data, which offers attractive business opportunities for companies.
Together with our clients, we develop the best industry-focused data protection solution for the company based on the current legislation, jurisprudence and the announcements made by the data protection supervisory authorities. This strategy is constantly being updated and is already taking into consideration the consequences of possible future developments.
