The rapid development, enormous data streams, and partly disruptive digital transformation are challenges. We are mastering these with technology and skill.

Digitisation is forcing the existing economy to change, while on the other hand it offers unlimited opportunities to use new technologies in business with Big Data, Internet of Things, Industry 4.0 or Artificial Intelligence. Controlling the associated uncertainties and risks, not least with regard to the legal framework, is key for the success of a business idea.

It is about using, evaluating and networking data. Compliance is only given if you know what is legally permissible in relation to data use and what is not, especially when it comes to personal data: The new data protection law, which has entered into force on 25 May 2018, requires extensive adjustments to internal data processing and IT security processes and procedures.
