Tackle compliance in a systematic manner,
always use data with a clear conscience

Data protection often fails for operative reasons

No company ever says: “Today, we’d like to violate the GDPR.” Just the opposite. Most companies and authorities make a big effort to safeguard the sensitive data of their customers or citizens. And that is indeed revealing: They are always “making an effort”.

Companies are still too often failing to actually clear the operative hurdles involved in complying with the provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) – especially with regard to the existence and analysis of unstructured data.

What do the GDPR regulations state in concrete terms?

Though it has long simply been common sense for data protection and compliance officers, one clear fact has not necessarily been taken fully on board in all departments at a company: Violating the GDPR is risky and expensive.

But which regulatory requirements does the GDPR pose with regard to personal data? Here are the key provisions:

  • Art. 12: Fulfilling the duty to inform the data subject transparently
  • Art. 15 to 21: Responding to requests from the data subject
  • Art. 33, 34: Duty to notify authorities and data subjects of a data breach
  • Art. 28, 29: Concluding a third-party data processing agreement
  • Art. 5, 17: Defining a data deletion policy
  • Art. 46: Ensuring an adequate level of data protection when transferring data to third countries
