The European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) obliges businesses, whose core activities include the processing of personal data, to appoint an External Data Protection Officer (DPO). The DPO is selected on the basis of their professional qualification and their expertise especially in the area of data protection. They are responsible for the following tasks:
Our data protection experts are TÜV®-certified as Data Protection Officers. If necessary, we can also allocate a TÜV®-certified Data Protection Auditor.
CLARIUS.LEGAL has developed a tool that allows you to estimate the amount of a possible fine for a GDPR violation in your business. The tool calculates the expected amount of the fine in a few steps based on the fine concept of the Data Protection Conference.
appointment of an External DPO in accordance with Article 37 GDPR
continuous advice on questions of data protection law
support for communication with supervisory authorities
cost control through predefined allocation of hours
compliance with Article 37 GDPR
The GDPR reinforces the existing obligation for businesses to regularly train their employees on data protection matters. Our data protection team supports businesses with employee seminars with different content focuses, for example:
All training courses can be delivered as on-site training, webinars or for self-study via online tool.
After a business has created a perfect data protection basis with the help of CLARIUS.LEGAL’s Data Protection Audit, there is a lack of resources to continually ensure the implementation of the catalogue of measures developed by CLARIUS.LEGAL.
In order to take pressure off the internal legal department, the business mandates CLARIUS.LEGAL with the appointment of an External Data Protection Officer (DPO). The DPO is not only responsible for the implementation measures but also functions as a contact person for supervisory authorities and provides support during data breaches.
