Busi­ness Brunch – Gene­ral Data Pro­tec­tion Regulation


Date ,

New requi­re­ments for companies

Busi­ness Brunch with Dr. Car­lo Piltz on 8 June 2018 in Berlin

As from 25 May 2018, the new EU Gene­ral Data Pro­tec­tion Regu­la­ti­on (DSGVO) will app­ly right across Euro­pe. As a direct­ly appli­ca­ble law, it will in future govern dealings with per­so­nal data in both the B2C and the B2B sec­tor. Agen­ci­es and enti­ties which pro­cess data must adapt their pro­ces­ses to the new requi­re­ments of the DSGVO by that date. 

In addi­ti­on to that, the­re are the new pro­vi­si­ons of the Fede­ral Data Pro­tec­tion Act, which will also app­ly as from 25 May 2018. So if com­pa­ny agree­ments on data pro­tec­tion exist at the pre­sent time, they will need to be review­ed as regards their con­for­mi­ty with the DSGVO and adapt­ed if necessary. 

For cases of non-compliance, the DSGVO makes pro­vi­si­on for a dra­sti­cal­ly increased civil penal­ty frame­work. In the worst case, it threa­tens to impo­se fines of 20m EUR or 4% of the world­wi­de annu­al tur­no­ver of the com­pa­ny concerned. 

At our Busi­ness Brunch we would like to pro­vi­de you with an over­view of the new spe­ci­fi­ca­ti­ons and make some hel­pful sug­ges­ti­ons for imple­men­ting the DSGVO. As our guest spea­k­er, Caro­lyn Eich­ler of the Ber­lin Com­mis­si­on for Data Pro­tec­tion and Free­dom of Infor­ma­ti­on (BlnBDI) will be pre­sen­ting some important aspects of the DSGVO and its imple­men­ta­ti­on as seen by the regu­la­to­ry authority.
