HEUSSEN: Legal Support for Magelan During Development of DSGVO Navigator – Presentation at IT-SA
With preparations underway for legal conformity with the basic data protection law recently enacted by the EU, local data security engineers and companies are both feeling the heat. That’s because they have to analyze any and all data-related processes they may have for compliance with the new law before it takes effect in May 2018.
Enter Munich-based IT service & software provider Magelan GmbH, which rose to the challenge and stands ready to present a solution at it-sa, Europe’s largest IT security expo held in Nuremberg, Germany. Using tried & proven Efecte software technology, Magelan GmbH has designed what is called the DSGVO Navigator. Going by the German acronym for the EU’s new basic data protection law, this is a workflow-based solution specifically designed for data protection officers to ensure proper and timely compliance with the latter.
Legal support for Magelan was rendered by attorney-at-law Mark Münch, an IT/data protection expert and partner at the corporate law firm HEUSSEN at the firm’s Stuttgart office. The reason for Magelan to hire Mr. Münch’s services was to ensure adequate compliance of the project with any and all requirements posed by DSGVO.
What makes this cloud- & workflow-based solution unique is that it takes a proactive part in walking the user through all the requirements by way of automatic task generation. It enables data protection officers to ensure proper and timely compliance with any and all of the aforementioned requirements, including verification of reporting requirements pursuant to Art. 33 (DSGVO) as well as automatic risk classification. Running at the Magelan computer center in Germany, this tool conforms to both the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and DSGVO.
Magelan is poised to launch its DSGVO Navigator at Booth 9-330 at the it-sa Expo in Nuremberg from Oct. 10 to 12. Also present on Oct. 11 will be HEUSSEN Partner Mark Münch to answer any legal questions related to the project. Mr. Münch has been providing Magelan with legal advice in IT & data protection matters for quite some time.
