The increasing globalization of data processing as well as different legislation require an organization-wide data protection strategy. 

Data Privacy & Protection

A data protection strategy provides transparency, control, and ensures that data is handled in accordance with business needs and legal requirements.

The aggregation and analysis of large amounts of data results in a massive increase in the importance of data security and data protection. The need of data protection measures is enshrined in law (e.g. EU-DSGVO) and subject to a binding legal framework. Failure to comply with the relevant requirements can result in penalties and even legal costs.

A well-organized data protection strategy provides the necessary overview for handling sensitive data. It also serves to raise awareness among employees about data protection and security requirements.

The integrity, privacy, and availability of data, as the basis for business activities, are ensured by a well-ordered data protection strategy. Continuous communication on data privacy & protection serves as a confidence-building measure both within and outside the company.

EFS’s modular system for “Data Privacy & Protection” offers different modules to ensure the necessary data protection and security with a reasonable amount of effort.
