Main Tasks

 

SUPPORT FOR BUSINESSES, PUBLIC AUTHORITIES AND DATA PROTECTION OFFICERS

We help data controllers and particularly their data protection officers / corporate privacy officers (DPOs / CPOs) to solve the many different legal, technical and organizational problems in order to achieve a proper balance between the interests of data subjects who merit protection and the equally justified need for information on the part of controllers and individual persons.

 

PROMOTING SELF-REGULATION

A major goal of the GDD is to strengthen effective self-regulation and corporate self-monitoring in the framework of German data protection law in order to make state supervision and controls unnecessary as far as possible. Furthermore, the GDD raises awareness of the advantages of self-regulation and corporate privacy management in other EU and non-EU countries.
