Robin Data at the Central German Trade Fair 2019

Discussions with visitors and exhibitors in Leipzig show that the basic data protection regulation (DSGVO) still raises questions for many companies.

Leipzig/Merseburg, 26.02.2019. Robin Data GmbH was represented for the first time at the Central German Crafts Fair in Leipzig. At the campaign stand of the Saxony-Anhalt Chambers of Crafts, Robin Data held talks with crafts businesses that were exhibiting their products at the trade fair. The General Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO) is a topic that still raises questions for many businesses. Even though the GDPR was introduced on 25 May 2018 and will soon celebrate its first anniversary.

Several exhibitors and participants from the field of "Digital Craft" presented themselves at the campaign stand of the Chambers of Crafts of Saxony-Anhalt today. For all companies, one thing was in focus: the presentation of their own products. Regardless of whether the craft businesses work with wood, glass, steel or food - the Chambers of Crafts of Saxony-Anhalt provide support on a wide range of topics. This also applies to the topic of data protection.

In addition to its own information offerings on the subject of Data protectionThe Halle Chamber of Skilled Crafts also works together with Robin Data. Especially for the reason that the founder of Robin Data Prof. Dr. Andre Döring himself worked for years as a data protection officer for a wide variety of companies in the region: "For me, the talks with craft enterprises from the region are important. The close exchange helps us to respond even more individually to existing needs and challenges with our solution.",according to Prof. Dr. Andre Döring.

Why the GDPR affects every craft enterprise

Every company that processes personal data must be familiar with the Data Protection Regulationwhich already came into force on 25 May 2018. This concerns the data of employees, customers or even suppliers. With the processing of this data, responsibilities arise for every company, such as the documentation obligation, which, in the worst case, are compensated with high fines in the event of non-compliance.

Uncertainties in connection with the GDPR

The discussions at the Central German Trade Fair for Craftsmen revealed that there are still many uncertainties long after the introduction of the GDPR. Craftsmen's businesses often ask themselves the following questions:

  • In which areas of my daily work do I have to treat data separately?
  • What do I have to document as standard?
  • When do I have to delete personal data?
  • Do I have to appoint a Data Protection Officer?
  • To what extent must I inform people that I am processing their data?
  • How can I protect the data of my employees and customers?

Data protection concerns everyone - how Robin Data supports

The implementation of measures in accordance with the GDPR is not optional and therefore an investment in the future of every company. However, small companies often lack the know-how and the time to do so. Robin Data offers two options at this point. The experts of Robin Data can be appointed as external data protection officers if required or data protection officers implement the requirements of the GDPR independently using the data protection management platform developed by Robin Data.
