We and data protection
This page is a "first information" for authorities, companies, clubs, associations and other parties who are interessted in data protection or rather IT security.
We have willfuly decided to provide the essential information as our business model is directed to recommendations and we experienced that a smart business information - like this page www.eedpo.com - is very helpful and time efficient after receiving an active recommendation. We have been growing our customer portfolio just by mouth to mouth by our clients since taking effect of the GDPR we are faced with a huge increase of requests.
A good provision of services contains "service, achievement and confidence". With the fulfilment of these 3 key points we compile our customers in future. Only satisfied customers stay customers and only satisfied customers recommend positiv. We are asking activly our customers if they are satisfied with our performance and if and where we may improve. We also animate our customers to recommend our business activly. Therefore we do not have to spend amounts of money for advertisements - our costs stay reasonable and therefore our customer prices.
We do not sell - we consult. Doing so it is important to us having a fair and transparent commerce. We also do not offer by default packages or flat rates off-the-shelf but demand for apointment of an external data protection officer a economic reasonable montly amount for both parties. Any other services which are resulting of the GDPR obligations and appointment of the data protection officer are charge by hourly or daly rates. You have at any time cost overview and no hidden and surprising costs as in plenty of various market offers. If you like to have monthly flat rate for a fix budget forecast please feel free to get in contact - we will find a solution together.

Without IT security no digital data protection
Just with an effective IT security concept a data protection and the protection of major company data puts you in a position to protect data sustained. We cover both areas and consult you in one.
The combination of IT management and data protection management system is achieved at best if both systems are taken into account at the momtent of concept planning creation. In the ISMS we are a competent partner in introduction of ISO 27001. After successful certification thru an accredited authority you may use this activly as a proof of your IT security standard. Internatnioal rule - internationaly accepted.
We also do not underlie any conflicting interests. It is you who always decides with which IT provider you put your actions in place. If necessary we are in a very good postion and have a huge network to get assisted by national and internationl high skilled professionals. With the most of these professionals we allready worked very successful in the past and gathered very good experiences.
We do not want to forget informing about that we support other internal and external data protection officers with our advise or as a sparrings partner.
Also we do appoint external CISO for compareable, fair and reasonable conditions like the external data protection officer – Support as a Service.
