UNIORG Data Protection Management
Data protection is increasingly important for everyday business routines, and applies to many aspects of them. But what businesses are affected by data protection requirements? What data is affected? The data referred to isn’t technical design data or chemical formulas, but rather personal data. That begs the questions: What is personal data and who comes into contact with it at the company? Generally, the following departments work with personal data:
- The HR department (employee data)
- The switchboard (names and telephone numbers)
- Sales, Support (customer data, addresses, credit ratings, sales, products purchased)
- Production (supplier/customer data)
- Reception (visitors: name, date, time)

The legal framework is based on the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG). The requirements stipulated in this law are often neglected during the hustle and bustle of daily business. In some cases, this can lead to 6-figure administrative fines. Company management bears sole responsibility for observing data protection requirements.
But it doesn’t have to get to that point – if the company takes preventative measures and involves a data protection officer in its data protection management strategy and processes. This officer can also be provided by an external service provider. Generally, data protection management consists of a suitable data protection organization that formulates, implements and keeps tabs on an appropriate set of rules. This work is based on a proactive data protection concept.
At the same time, data protection is always an opportunity for companies. A functioning data management system helps them avoid risks and generate value. Successful data protection management can give your company a competitive advantage.
