Data protection

(external data protection officer
and data protection consulting

NOTOS Xperts GmbH focuses on data protection.

We are convinced: Legally compliant handling of personal data in digital business is a major success factor. Digitalization creates new business and process models – but at the same time requires access to flexible, decentralized IT resources (cloud computing: SaaS, PaaS, IaaS). Valuable business-critical data must be stored comprehensively, systematically and always and everywhere available as well as analyzed, evaluated and profitably used. This places data protection compliance directly at the center of attention.

Whether as external data protection officers or as consulting experts, we see our task in reconciling your economic goals with the interests of data protection and those data subjects in the best possible way.

All our consultants (IT lawyers, information counsels and IT specialists) have the necessary expertise and are already working as external data protection officers for over 50 companies in Germany – from retailers to international corporations.

Our working languages are German and English.

NOTOS Xperts GmbH cooperates with NOTOS Partnerschaft von Rechtsanwälten mbB in the area of data protection consulting. In this way we can guarantee our clients in-depth and process-dependent legal advice and representation at all times.

Areas of focus:

  • Provision of the external data protection officer and his deputy
  • Data protection compliance
  • GDPR audits at group, company, department and application level
  • Data protection-compliant company organization incl. group-wide and international data transfers
  • Data protection impact assessments and balances of interests
  • Concepts and handling for the fulfillment of rights of data subject
  • Conception and implementation of technical-organisational measures (TOMs)
  • Building CRM databases
  • Direct marketing, digital marketing, generation and use of qualified leads/interest data
  • Social media connections and applications

IT security and IT forensics

Information security plays a decisive role in the age of digitalization of value chains and entire business models.

Both data protection (protection of personal data) and trade secret protection (protection of factual data) require an “appropriate” IT security level in companies.

Industrial espionage, hacker attacks, ransomware and viruses reinforce this need.

As consultants with a predominantly legal background, our focus is on the planning, development, assessment and documentation of the information security management system, including the implemented (or to be implemented) technical and organizational measures. We always keep an eye on whether a measure can withstand the strict assessments of a supervisory authority, a court or an insurance company in the event of a claim.

NOTOS Xperts GmbH cooperates with several national and international companies in the area of IT forensics and IT security. These companies focus on testing (pen testing, hacking), auditing, investigation and/or planning and implementation of IT security architectures.

Areas of focus:

  • Information security management systems
  • Tendering and selection procedures
  • Determination of protection requirements
  • Project consulting
  • Legal support for forensic investigations
  • Crisis communication with supervisory authorities, investors, press and public prosecutors (usually in cooperation with NOTOS Partnerschaft von Rechtsanwälten mbB)
