Our consultancy services

Data protection consultancy by certified data protection officers

For years, data protection has been gaining in importance - not least because of ongoing digitalization and increasingly strict legal regulations. Due to the large number of data protection-relevant processes and the recent requirements of the new version of the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), there is often a considerable need for action in companies. Be it the project-related implementation of data protection requirements or the need to appoint a data protection officer. Our aim is to find the optimal and practicable solution for your company - an individual solution tailored to your needs.

Our expertise

We are multiple certified data protection officers, lawyers and attorneys.

We have many years of experience in consulting companies, both as external consultants and in-house. Our consultants are always informed about the latest developments, so that they can prepare your company for all requirements at any time. Regular further training and a constant interdisciplinary exchange allow us to cover the entire consulting spectrum in data protection. 

Data protection consultancy is provided by our expert team - including TÜV-certified external data protection officers, TÜV-certified data protection auditors and lawyers specialising in data protection law.
