European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

After an almost four-year legislative process, Regulation (EU/2016/679) of the European Parliament and of the Council of April 27, 2016 on the protection on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data, and repealing Directive 95/46/EC has been adopted. In Germany further regulations are to be achieved by the Data Protection Adjustment and Implementation Act EU (DSAnpUG-EU), which was passed by the Government in February. With the resulting legal clarity, companies are able to implement the internal arrangements of the new standards. Since the law of the regulation finally comes into effect on the following day, the deadline to do so is May 24, 2018. The time and personnel required to prepare for the GDPR are often underestimated within the company. The GDPR concerns all those who collect, process and use personal data, such as customer or employee data, whether as responsible person or as a contractor.
