IT security, Data protection, Cloud Computing

In Germany, the protection of personal data has constitutional status. As a result, all contractors need to comply with all legal provisions on the protection of personal data, on two bases: One, in their business transactions with their customers, and two, in their companies’ own sphere such as, among other things, pertaining to their employees. Moreover, the increasing use of cloud computing and the international transfer of personal data within the corporation structure and by means of the use of the Internet including social media has brought legal questions pertaining to IT security and the protection of personal data into focus. Questions regarding Safe Harbour remain pending. New laws are coming.
