Data Protection

Specialist for European GDPR (DSGVO)

Introduction

 

Data protection is a very extensive and complex subject that is subject to a wide variety of regulatory frameworks.

 

Due to the constant expansion of digitization, data is becoming more and more important and, depending on the industry, is moving to the center of the value chain. The requirements for the legality of data processing and the security of processing operations have increased significantly in recent years. In this context, it is therefore particularly important to comply with and implement compliance requirements.

 

My core competence lies in the area of ​​the GDPR, which applies when you come into contact with personal data from customers from the EU. Since distances are shrinking more and more nowadays, there are more and more contacts with people from other regions of the world.

 

Privacy Certification

 

I have gained extensive knowledge in the field of data protection since 2015. From 2015, in addition to my managerial duties, I also took on the duties of data protection officer and gave solution-oriented advice to the companies I wrote for in the area of ​​European data protection law. I have undergone training as a certified data protection officer and certified data protection auditor at TÜV Rheinland and can therefore draw on well-founded knowledge from practical implementation and theoretical training. One of my core tasks at my previous employers was advising the marketing team on all questions of data protection and the regulatory review of digital processes.

 

 

Privacy Management Systems

 

Data protection management systems help to meet these requirements.

The implementation of an appropriate organizational or management system is based on the data protection requirements of the organizational structure and the data processing processes. The configuration of the corresponding systems is very different and IS primarily determined by the sensitivity, amount and type of data processing as well as regulatory requirements. In addition, the regulations of these processes change from state to state.

 

Do you have customers in Europe? Then you have to observe the requirements of the GDPR

 

The same applies to certain forms of international activity - the GDPR and the future transatlantic data protection agreement, for example, are regulations that are required in data exchange and data processing with Europe. In the following article (NAME) I go into the topic and explain why the GDPR can also be important for companies in the USA.

 

Risks and fines

 

Disregarding these regulations can be punished with high fines.

However, current developments such as the ADPPA – American Data Privacy and Protection Act – also show that the relevant requirements are becoming increasingly likely to have to be implemented in practice.
