GDD services and products are designed to help companies/public authorities and their DPOs to comply with data protection provisions and to maintain an up-to-date and effective privacy management.

They may benefit from:

    • "RDV" - specialized magazine on data processing law with a strong focus on data protection
    • Job aid publications (guides for practitioners)
  • Know-How and Networking
    The GDD has established 26 groups for the interchange of know-how and experience across Germany. Members of the groups (mostly DPOs) meet regularly and are given the opportunity to discuss specific issues with representatives of data protection authorities.  Also, the GDD forms and is represented in various specialized working groups which develop solutions and guidelines for practitioners.

    The GDD promotes practicable and effective data protection. According to that maxim and based on the experience of our members, we express our views vis-à-vis the European Commission, the German government and the supervisory authorities.
