EU-DSGVO
THE NEW BASIC DATA PROTECTION REGULATION


 

WHAT COMPANIES NEED TO KNOW
The transition period ended on May 25, 2018. As of this date, the DSGVO has been in force throughout Europe without any further transitional period. Medium-sized enterprises must also act immediately, because the DSGVO brings many changes and challenges for them. Business models need to be adapted, and work processes must be reviewed and possibly reorganized. And not just in Germany, but throughout Europe. But what does this mean in concrete terms for your company? What do you need to know and what actions do you need to take to be on the safe side in terms of the DSGVO?

The current national data protection law in Italy is considered to be stricter than what is now to become European standard on the basis of the EU GDPR. Against this background, the Italian legislature is trying to continue on its current path. While the basic idea of ​​the GDPR is to place the examination of "legitimate interests" in the collection, storage and processing of data in the hands of the person collecting, storing and processing the data, the Italian legislator seems to at least partially reverse this responsibility want. The DIRO law firm Derra, Meyer & Partner advises comprehensively in the area of ​​compliance and on all issues of Italian data protection law. Working languages ​​are Italian, German and English.

Following the entry into force of the EU GDPR, organizations in the Netherlands must also carry out a so-called "Privacy Impact Assessment" before they begin processing personal data. When processing personal data, national data protection regulations, such as medical data and retention periods, must also be taken into account in certain cases. The lawful processing of personal data in the Netherlands therefore requires special knowledge of the EU GDPR and the other Dutch data protection laws. The specialists of the law office transfer the legal regulations into tailor-made measures and adjust the consultation to the individual requirements of the companies. Working languages ​​are Dutch, German and English.

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO) is also valid in Austria from 25.05.2018. Due to the numerous opening clauses in this ordinance, the Austrian legislator has adopted the "Data Protection Adaptation Act 2018", which also takes effect from 25.05.2018. In Austria the data protection authority (former data protection commission) is responsible for the observance of data protection. Significant amendments to the GDPR exist, for example, in the area of ​​administrative criminal law. In addition to the criminal provisions of the GDPR (Art. 83), fines (fines) of up to EUR 50,000.00 are provided for certain violations of the Data Protection Act. In addition, the unlawful processing of data worthy of secrecy with an intent to enrich or in the intent to harm is legally punishable - essentially unchanged from the previous legal situation.
