Data protection consulting Cologne

For whom in Cologne is data protection advice worthwhile?


Data protection and data security have many facets. The European General Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR), the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the Data Protection Act for North Rhine-Westphalia (DSG NRW), which applies to Cologne, oblige all stakeholders to comply with numerous regulations relating to personal data. This affects, for example

  • the 59,600 companies in Cologne
  • the 242 clubs listed on
  • the many freelancers in the cathedral city

Data protection obligations in Cologne

The people of Cologne have done well with slogans such as "Kenne mer nit, bruche mer nit, fott domet", "Et es wie et es" and "Et kütt wie et kütt". However, the serenity enshrined in Cologne's constitution is unfortunately not so easy to transfer to data protection.

Extensive information obligations must be taken into account. For example, the persons from whom data is collected must be informed of their rights in good time. This includes the right to information about which data relating to them is processed and in what form, their right to object to processing, their right to rectification if data is incorrect, their right to erasure of data and their right to data portability. A privacy policy must be created for this on the website of the trading company based in the metropolis on the Rhine. But that is by no means all. This must also be complied with. This alone presents many players in Cologne with the question of how they should implement this.

In addition, those responsible are required to implement a range of technical and organizational measures (TOM) to protect the data and to document them. These range from appropriate access security to the buildings where data is stored, to obliging employees to comply with data protection regulations, to concluding data processing agreements to ensure that service providers comply with data protection regulations. Here too, companies are faced with many questions. It is very time-consuming for you to deal with all aspects of data protection and always stay up to date, as the laws must always be taken into account in their current version.

Data protection advice from 2B Advice

As part of our data protection consulting, we first determine your needs together with you and provide you with guidance. We then plan the necessary steps and implement them systematically with you if required. Our services include, for example, the preparation of data protection declarations, the data protection obligations of your employees, employee sensitization and training, professional support in the conclusion of GDPR-compliant order processing contracts as well as the improvement of technical and organizational measures and data protection impact assessments. We also support you in implementing our data protection software. You can use it to record all data protection information in a clear and structured manner in one place.

Supervisory authority responsible for Cologne

Last but not least, we work together with the supervisory authority responsible for Cologne. This is the:

State Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information North Rhine-Westphalia
P.O. Box 20 04 44
40102 Düsseldorf
Phone: 0211/38424-0

Its task is to monitor compliance with data protection regulations in North Rhine-Westphalia and therefore in Cologne. In the event of non-compliance with the legal requirements of the GDPR, those responsible must expect warnings and high fines. That's why our data protection advice minimizes your liability risks. The Cologne motto "Et hätt noch noch jot jejange" does not apply to data protection. It's best to make an appointment now!
