Home office & beyond: data protection & information security for the Greater Region

For many companies, data protection and information security have become central issues, virtually overnight, as an outcome of the coronavirus crisis. COVID-19 has made the home office a reality: a reality that will remain with us after the crisis and will become part of the "New Normal" – and a reality that carries certain risks.

A clear objective: protect your company's fuel

These new risks are certainly reason enough to pay special attention to data protection and information security in the home office. A poorly-organised home office bears considerable risks, especially in this area, and these can prove fatal. After all, your data is your company’s fuel. We therefore see it as our core task to rule such dangers out from the outset. To this end, we advise clients throughout Germany from our Saarbrücken headquarters – and internationally from our Luxembourg office.

In doing so, we first focus on all technical aspects of the home office: which devices are used by your employees, which channels are used for data transmission, and how can maximum data security be ensured even with decentralised working methods? In addition, there are a variety of legal and organisational questions that need to be clarified in order to be on the safe side.

Our versatile team will assist you concretely and proactively with all these questions – and will draw up a home office policy tailored to your needs with all the necessary documents. In doing so, we will always provide our top-class advice as equal partners. This is how, together with you, we can prevent the new working world from becoming a data disaster for your company.


A clear legal obligation: The GDPR applies always and everywhere

However, data protection and information security are not just relevant to home offices, and they will probably become an even bigger part of your company's day-to-day activities in the future. If data is the fuel of your company, your IT resources are its backbone. Therefore, both must be particularly well protected. This applies all the more where customer data, that of your business partners, or other company secrets are stored and processed. Here you have a legal obligation.


It doesn’t matter whether your employees process data on a desktop on company premises, on a laptop during a meeting with clients or on a smartphone at home: according to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), you are as a company fully responsible for data and its security. It is therefore in your own interest to take appropriate technical and organisational measures so that you do not lose control over your data with your employees working remotely.

Never forget: a breach of applicable law can be very expensive. Together, we can avoid such a contingency – regardless of whether you have your company headquarters in Germany, Luxembourg or the Greater Region, and regardless of where your employees work.
