Duties. Advising controllers and data protection officers with regard to Art. 57 GDPR is a major aspect of our work. Complex issues are presented to us in written form or during a meeting at the BayLDA or on-site. Many controllers, data protection officials and attorney-at-law know our keynote. We rather help by advising on an issue beforehand in order to avoid data protection violations, compared to issuing a fine afterwards. This website is part of our consulting engagement. Furthermore, we inspect data processing (sometimes on-site), we help to review data protection violations (e.g. hacking incidents) and we work with relevant associations and chambers.
