Data Protection rules in Germany

European Data Protection Reform

If your company touches any Europeans’ data you’d better prepare for what’s coming.

The EU data protection reform is steadily moving forward. On March 12, 2014, the European Parliament adopted the current proposal in its first reading. The new regulation is intended to strengthen consumer privacy rights and to boost Europe’s digital economy. However, many experts across the Atlantic have expressed deep concerns with regard to some controversial aspects of the incoming laws, which introduce bigger fines, 24 hour disclosure and the enforced Data Privacy Officer. The proposed regulation applies to the processing of personal data pertaining to data subjects in the EU even if the controller or processor of such data is not established in the EU. U.S. companies with or without operations in the EU that fail to comply with the new rules can trigger fines up to €100 million. If your company touches any Europeans’ data, you’d better prepare for what’s coming and know what to do to minimize the impact on your organization when the regulation is enforced.

European Data Protection ReformHow to minimize impact and costs of the new regulation

As any other companies processing personal data of European consumers, U.S. organizations should not content themselves with seeking to avoid the imposition of administrative fines. Ideally, companies should embody personal data protection and information security into their business models and processes as inherent parts of the company´s culture, products and services.

In doing so, U.S. companies can benefit from a uniform regulatory framework that saves significant costs compared to the web of 28 national data protection rules. Personal data is becoming the new currency of the information age. The EU regulation mandates the implementation of data protection “by design” and “by default”. Companies should look at this new rules as an effective way to gain consumer´s trust and to establish a competitive edge in the ever evolving internet markets. The best way to minimize the inherent costs of the new legal framework is to implement structured processes that make compliance fail-safe and that greatly reduce the need for short-lived trouble shooting and undesirable – and expensive – disclosures of data breaches.
