Do you know the new
EU General Data Protection Regulation?

  • The EU-US Privacy Shield, the EU standard contractual clauses, and Binding Corporate Rules? How do you securely transfer data – in the company, to third parties, and across borders?
  • Is your company website designed securely according to data protection law?
  • Are you permitted to publish a birthday calendar of your staff members within your company?
  • Is your processing of personal data in the company in accordance with the law?
  • What is a procedural directory?
  • Are you legally obligated to appoint a Data Protection Officer?

The eco External Data Protection Officer will answer your questions and help your company to act in accordance with data protection law. Today and in the future.

What are the advantages compared to an internal solution?

  • An “all-inclusive package” with regard to your corporate data protection, including audits and one data protection workshop per year
  • No additional costs for the training of staff

All of our services are performed exclusively by experienced data protection experts (fully-qualified lawyers).
