Almost every business model requires the processing of personal data. Violations of the complex requirements of data protection law are subject to high fines. While these risks of fines primarily affect companies, the parallel criminal law risk affects managers. Data protection law also restricts the legal leeway of supervisory and law enforcement authorities and courts. For their part, companies and individuals must comply with data protection law when conducting internal investigations – as well as when cooperating with supervisory and law enforcement authorities.
