Data protection is a competitive advantage for your company
However, data protection that is well-planned and implemented into corporate processes does not have to be a hindrance. Instead, it creates real competitive advantages for your company because efficient and well-documented data protection makes your company not only more secure but also more attractive to business partners, customers and employees. Furthermore, you can save yourself hassle and costs due to possible violations of the Federal Data Protection Act [Bundesdatenschutzgesetz (BDSG)] and other regulations.
