Who needs Data Protection Consulting?

As supervisory authorities continue to focus on informational protection, the ever-increasing demands on data privacy will have to be met. For small and medium-sized companies (SMEs), right up to large enterprises or private-law organisations, this means that there are topics waiting to be addressed and resolved.

Data Protection FAQ

Are you unsure whether data protection consulting is relevant for you at all? In our FAQ we have answered the most frequently asked questions about data protection for companies.

What is Data Protection?
Data protection derives from the right to informational self-determination and protects the general personal right. The basic idea behind data protection is that every person must be able to decide for himself what happens to his data and information. This means that affected persons must always be informed when their data is used and must be allowed to decide for themselves what is done with it.
Why is Data Protection important?
Data protection is a fundamental right and helps to build trust with customers and employees and protects the basic right to informal self-determination. Smart data protection also supports your digitalization and helps to define sustainable digital infrastructures.
Who is affected by the Basic Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)?
The basic data protection regulation (GDPR) applies to the processing of personal data within the EU and it also applies to non-European companies that process data within the EU. In practice, it mainly affects companies and government agencies. The more sensitive the data processing, the higher the requirements. Excluded is data processing in the personal and family area.
What data are considered personal data under the GDPR?
What data is considered personal data under the GDPR?

Personal data is all information that relates to a natural person or makes a natural person identifiable. This includes almost all data if it is associated with a person. Personal data includes

  • Name
  • Address
  • email address
  • Application documents
  • Protocols on access of persons to buildings
  • Picture and video material on which persons are recognizable
  • IP addresses
  • The vehicle number plate
  • Video or photo recordings
What are typical cases for documentation obligations in Data Protection?
Documentation obligations result essentially from the principle of accountability. Those responsible for data protection must be able to prove at any time that they meet the requirements of data protection . To be able to implement this, data protection processes must be documented.

Dies bedeutet dass u.a. die Durchführung von Datenschutzschulungen, die Etablierung eines Datenschutz Managements oder eines Lösch- und Berechtigungskonzeptesdokumentiert werden müssen.

Who is Responsible for Data Protection in a Company?
Data protection is a management task! The management is responsible for the implementation of data protection requirements.
Ultimately, however, each employee is also responsible for compliance with data protection within the scope of his or her own role. The management and the executives are also responsible for planning and implementing suitable measures for the implementation of data privacy. This also requires the establishment of an effective data privacy management system. Data privacy officers have the function here of advising on the implementation and working towards data security.
When do I need an external Data Protection Officer?
The obligation to order basically exists if parts of your business purpose is the processing of personal data (e.g. recruitment agency or call centre) or if more than 10 persons are regularly employed with the processing of personal data (e.g. the case with large personnel departments).
Who may be the Data Protection Officer in the Company?
The data protection officer may be whoever has the necessary qualifications and in particular the necessary specialist knowledge. Both internal employees and external service providers can be appointed as data protection officers. Data protection officers are not bound by instructions in their work and should be free of conflicts of interest. For this reason, they are usually assigned directly to the management. Due to possible conflicts of interest, managing directors are excluded from the role of data protection officers, as are usually also managers.
When do you need a Privacy Policy?
The protection policy is regulated in Articles 12 to 14 GDPR and is a part of the DSGVO which will be revised in the future. This is because currently, information in accordance with these articles must always be provided when personal data are processed. As this often leads to organisational problems in practice, the data protection declaration is often outsourced to the company website in order to provide information to those affected in the most pragmatic way possible.
Are Training Courses on Data Protection mandatory?
Data privacy training is not explicitly required by law. However, the GDPR requires the implementation of appropriate measures to ensure data protection. This includes the regular training of employees involved in the processing of personal data. In practice, this means that it is not necessarily the craftsman working on customer assignments who needs to be trained, but the employees of the personnel department or the IT administrators do need to be trained.
What is a Violation of Data Protection?
A breach of data protection ultimately means that the regulations of the GDPR or other data protection regulations were not observed. However, since minor violations of data protection are commonplace and even occur at the supervisory authorities, the term data protection violation usually refers to reportable data protection breakdowns or violations subject to a fine. A data protection breach can result from the fact that rules are not observed, for example, because no deletion concept has been implemented or because data has been stolen.
Data Violation in your Company: What to do?
If a violation of data protection occurs in your company, you are obliged under Art. 33 GDPR to report it to the supervisory authority responsible for you within 72 hours. Most supervisory authorities have an online form for this purpose, and it is possible to make a preliminary notification to comply with the tight deadline if the matter has not yet been fully clarified. However, a data protection breach can only be assumed if the breach also poses a risk to the rights and freedoms of the data subjects.
