Even though several months have passed since the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) became applicable, the German economy is still struggling to implement the European regulation. According to a survey conducted by the leading digital association Bitkom among more than 500 companies, less than a quarter (24 percent) of German companies have fully implemented the GDPR, yet. Many enterprises are still uncertain about the new privacy regulations: urgent privacy issues remain unresolved, process adaptations often take excessive time, and unsatisfied customers request the premature deletion of their data..

In this workshop the participants will obtain a wide-ranging overview of the European regulation, and it's implementation into the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG-neu). Based on current use cases, participants will be provided with concrete recommendations for an efficient and compliant implementation of the new privacy requirements in their own organisations.
