Even if it is not your primary business to deal with the comprehensive processing of personal data, it might be mandatory for you to appoint a data protection officer. Once you employ at least 20 people who are constantly engaged in the automated processing of personal data, you are already required by law to appoint a data protection officer. However, you should regard this appointment not only as an obligation. A data protection officer builds trust with clients, service providers, and employees, and is therefore a smart investment in your company’s reputation.
You can choose whether you will train an employee to become data protection officer and provide regular subsequent training, or whether you appoint an external data protection officer. Take advantage of our expert knowledge and utilize our professional exchange of experience with the supervisory authorities by appointing one of our lawyers as your external data protection officer.
