Datenschutz @en

In December 2015, after years of negotiations, the EU Parliament and the EU Council agreed on a European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The aim is to level the protection of personal data throughout Europe. From a German perspective, the existing data protection laws will not change essentially in view of the GDPR. However, some companies in the rest of Europe will face quite some changes. One of these changes will be the mandatory appointment of Data Protection Officers throughout Europe.
