Sustainable data protection organization through the appointment of an external Data Protection Officer

If a company has more than 19 employees dealing with the processing of personal data, the Federal Data Protection Act stipulates that a Data Protection Officer must be appointed.

TÜViT provides external certified Data Protection Officers who ensure sustainable data protection organization in companies.


Modular approach

We have the right data privacy/protection solution for every company size and situation: from the introductory, through the basic protection to the tailor-made services package. In addition, we offer optional services, such as the conception and creation of policy guidelines and standards. 

TÜViT not only looks after small and medium-sized businesses, but also large corporate groups working on the international stage at around 250 locations, of which 18 are abroad. Our data protection consultants have many years of experience in various sectors of industry and corporate structures.

The experience of TÜViT shows that it is possible for companies with external support to fulfill statutory data privacy/protection requirements without having any negative impact on operational processes.
