Seminar “The New Data Protection Law for Companies”

The Hamburg based law firm Mittmann holds a seminar on the new data protection law for companies.

12-1:30 Uhr


Hotel Sofitel Hamburg, Alter Wall


In May 2016, the European Union has decided on a General Data Protection Regulation which will become applicable as of May 25th, 2018 and will newly regulate data protection law. Although the regulation is directly applicable in the member states of the European Union, it leaves much room for completion by the member states. The German legislator has just voted a reform of the federal statute on data protection (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz, BDSG) which will henceforth complete the regulation.


The new law implies numerous more or less important changes to the law currently in force. Companies will have to adapt their processes to the new law. If this adaptation is not completed as of Mai 25th, 2018, important fines are threatening as well as lawsuits from victims.


The seminar provides a general overview over the new law and shows the areas where adaptations will be necessary. The seminar is free of charge and includes a small snack. Please send your registration to
