Data Protection Law

Personal data is a value, moreover, a modern commodity. Sensitivity for the protection of personal data increases. Accordingly, in all their activities companies are obliged to comply with data protection provisions.

I support companies in getting prepared for the EU General Data Protection Regulation (25 May 2018) as well as anticipating compliance with Federal Data Protection Act currently under revision .

My key areas of expertise are:

  • Agreements between data controllers and data processors, in particular in connection with outsourcing projects
  • International data transfers
  • Intra-group data transfers
  • Information requests of data subjects
  • Company data protection guidelines / record management guidelines
  • Compliant employee monitoring and employee data processing
  • Data protection concepts and strategies
  • Data Protection Officer
  • Data Protection Audits

Since 2008 I chair the annual Data Protection Conference of the Europainstitut of the University of Zurich. Programs of past conferences can be obtained here: 2017, 20162015, 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010, 2009 and 2008. I am very much looking forward to chairing the Data Protection Conference on 25 January 2018 for the 11th time.
