Data Protection and Data Security

Understanding Data Protection as an Opportunity

Currently, many companies are in the process of organizing their digital transformation. The digitalization and virtualization of the economic life is becoming increasingly challenging due to the -increasing data-protection requirements. However, we consider data protection as an opportunity.

Our team of highly specialized lawyers provides comprehensive advice on data protection and data security. At an initial stage, our services regularly focus on the identification, analysis and evaluation of your internal company process of handling personal data, including all documentation relevant to data protection in your company. With our standardized Privacy Impairment Check, we identify existing data protection risks and evaluate the maturity of your data protection organization.

We optimize the data protection organization for our clients by using the leeway of data protection law in accordance with any given client's individual risk profile relating to data protection. In this context, we provide preventive and constitutive advice on the introduction of information and data management systems, as well as the development and market launch of products ("Privacy by Design"). Furthermore, we provide advice on all issues of corporate data protection, such as preservation/deletion obligations, personal training, providing advice to internal data protection officers, establishing whistleblowing systems, employee participation, work council negotiations, the conception and implementation of rules of conduct, policies and operational data protection concepts.

In addition, we assist our clients and their data protection officers in all questions regarding German and European Data Protection Law, including the data protection compliance of national and international data transfers (e.g. company-wide and cross-border processing of personal data, transfer of personal data under the Privacy Shield, EU standard contractual clauses and binding corporate regulations). Ultimately, we also advise on an individual case basis, for example regarding internal or external investigation proceedings after data breaches ("Data Loss Incident") and regarding all official or judicial proceedings (litigation).

Issues in the digital business are regularly at the interface of law and technology and require a multidisciplinary approach. Deloitte Legal combines expertise and experience in the areas of law, tax, business consulting and IT consulting with global resources to provide cross-border interdisciplinary counselling.
