FAQ - What to know about the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
The extensive provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) apply not only to European but also to non-European companies which offer goods and services to EU citizens and process their data. So, companies around the world should ask the same questions: "Where to start with implementing the new privacy rules?", "which processes and procedures need to be set up within the company?" and "how does a GDPR compliant data management look like?" are only few of many puzzling questions.
From 25 May onwards, all companies within the scope of the GDPR have to be compliant.
To help companies planning their approach towards GDPR compliance, Bitkom has published an FAQ-document in German and English. It highlights the main changes and new features in EU data protection law and provides also non-European companies with a checklist to effectively trigger the right processes and procedures within the company.
