Implement the DSG Regulation correctly


Strictly speaking, it is actually too late for a book dealing with the implementation of the European Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Because the deadline is for authorities, clubs and Company mercilessly expired in May 2018.

After all, for two years, the so-called "responsible authorities" had time for the change from the Federal Data Protection Act to the new Europe-wide uniform regulation. But by no means all companies have mastered this in the time. And, as can hardly be expected, there is still a great deal of uncertainty in many companies as to what specific effects the regulations have on their own specialist area.

Data protection in human resources


Probably nowhere in the company do so many personal and sensitive data come together as in the human resources department. In the personnel file, reviews of the employee are stored. It also includes information about his earnings and bank details.

It's not so different when it comes to the documents that candidates send to open positions. Certificates, resumes, addresses - these are all data that needs to be protected. What does the HR department have to pay attention to in their work? This is the basic question that answers the contributions collected by Axel von Walter as publisher.

Concrete answers to many questions about the DSG-VO


The subtitle of the book leads the reader (almost) a little bit astray. Yes, it's about privacy in HR. But the topic is described so comprehensively that also the employees of other departments will read the book with profit.

This applies in particular to all topics that have to be solved by companies across all departments. These are then the order data processing or the maintenance of the processing directory or the position and appointment of a data protection officer. After all, these designs account for a good half of the circumference.

Well-founded technical contributions


The individual technical contributions have the necessary depth, but are still written in a generally understandable way. Through many footnotes and annotations, they relate to past judgments, comments and the actual legislation. Thus, the almost 400 pages strong title is both workbook and reference book.

The publisher and authors have succeeded in providing a practical and well-founded guide to implementing the DSG Regulation in the company. The book is also interesting for the readers of other departments, because many cross-cutting issues are brought to the point.
