Data Protection

Data protection law is becoming an ever more important feature of today’s information-driven society. Ensuring effective protection for personal data is one of the greatest challenges facing society. Because of their complexity and the continually changing digital landscape, most data protection concepts need to be regularly adapted, updated and revised, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), as the most important regulatory building block, being perhaps the best-known example. Maiwald’s team of attorneys-at-law can help you with the legal implementation of regulations under the GDPR and the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG). We analyze any existing data protection measures the client may already have established, and based on these develop a data protection concept to meet the particular circumstances. Through representing client companies in highly regulated branches of industry, for example in the pharmaceuticals sector, we have gained many years of experience and invaluable industry-specific insights.
