Data protection concerns everyone. Companies in particular are confronted with the issue and have to meet the complex legal requirements. The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) obliges every company operating in the EU, but also other organizations, to comply with the regulations contained therein whenever they process personal data. This includes all information that relates to an indetified or identifiable natural person an, in companies for example, not only concerns the data of their own employees, but also that of customers and business partners. Futhermore, there are additional laws to complay with (such as the German Federal Data Protection Act in Germany).
The progress of digitalization in particular increases issues relevant to data protection law. Functioning data protection programs are more important than ever against the background of growing perceived risks for the security of IT systems and the associated risk of data misuse.
In the event of data protection law violations, companies are threatened with severe sanctions, in particular fines of up to €20 million or four percent of global annual sales.
A data protection program can help to ensure compliance with the requirements, protect the company and strengthen the trust of employees, business partners and customers in the company.
