Hacker attacks can cause immense damage – especially to companies. Attempts to steal or encrypt data are not uncommon.
To protect itself against such attacks, the Gauselmann Group attaches great importance to matters of data protection and data security. Against this background, Gauselmann AG’s central Data Protection department recently invited 20 Data Protection Coordinators to attend a national data protection workshop at Schloss Benkhausen. The aim was to bring the participants up to date on current developments and to develop common positions.
Alongside issues such as transparency and the duty to inform, the use of artificial intelligence in the company context was also a topic of discussion. Data security, Microsoft Office 365 and ESG data were also covered, as well as the tools Wave, DocuSign and DeepL. The central Data Protection department had invited in-house and external experts to deliver keynote speeches.
“The workshop offered the participants a valuable platform for sharing and expanding questions relating to data protection and once again highlighted the immense importance of data protection within the digital world as well as within the Gauselmann Group with its customers and players,” explained Ludwig Beckmann, Chief Compliance Officer at the Gauselmann Group. This recognition underlines the need for continuous training and cooperation in this field, he said.
