Data protection and GDPR

If you are obligated by the new legal position to appoint a controller for data protection, you have the possibility to appoint an external controller by secopan. Another novelty is that the official internal controller for data protection, as is so far mandatory in several federal states, can be replaced by an external controller.

The advantage of an external controller is that they are not subjected to a higher dismissal protection. Furthermore, as a general rule, they do not lead to conflicts of interest, which could prevent the appointment of a qualified internal employee.

On basis of our experiences in the areas of IT security and certification according to ISO/IEC 27001 we are perfectly prepared to bring your IT and your company the required protection level with regard to the explicitly mentioned principle of data security according to article 32 GDPR.

In any case the management does need to fulfil the minimum requirements of GDPR at its own risk. Do not take this challenge up on your own and draw on our competent services.
