“With the entry into force of the new General Data Protection Regulation, data protection law in Austria and Europe is placed on a completely new legal foundation. For the first time ever, the regulation explicitly regulates concepts such as “Privacy by Design” or “Privacy by Default” and entails new obligations for data controllers and processors. Thanks to my many years of experience in advising on all practically relevant aspects of data protection law, I can solve my clients’ related challenges competently and efficiently.”
