Happy Birthday Data Protection!
He is loved and hated, praised and rebuked, he always causes discussions, but at this point he should simply be congratulated, because the data protection is turning 50 years!
Before the first data protection laws came into force in Germany sensitive personal data was processed without the consent of the person concerned and without any legal basis.
Twenty years later, the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights was adopted in 1990 and finally, in 2016, the EU-GDPR in its current form.
Without data protection, Signum Consulting could not guarantee its customers a responsible handling of sensitive data, a profound trust would possibly not even exist. We congratulate this valuable instrument and hope for less hype, less bureaucratic hurdles and more trust in the future.
