Leveraging the Economic Value

of GDPR Investment

in Germany

  - Free seminar in Düsseldorf - 

Date:3rd, May 2019 (Fri.) 13:30-16:00

*Includes 30 min of socializing time


What are the correlations between

the history of Privacy & Security in Germany & German's emotional feeling toward it?

And what really is the economic value of GDPR investment in Germany?

According to a report published in January 2019 by one of the biggest American IT companies, 59% out of 3206 corporates in the world are already meeting all or most of GDPR's requirements. From this report, we can determine that corporates’ have a strong interest in complying with this new regulation.


On the other hand, the level of implementation is often only at the superficial level and the process itself is negatively affecting multinational companies’ corporate efficiency due to the difference of philosophy in privacy & data management across different regions and countries.


The foundation of the GDPR is significantly rooted in Germany’s history and culture in privacy & security management. Understanding Germany’s standard privacy and security policies is the first thing to do to achieve genuine GDPR management without causing any organizational inefficiencies and misunderstandings.


In this seminar, we are going to present how GDPR is related to German culture and what needs to be done to earn trust from German local stakeholders (also the most influential member of the EU) through GDPR implementation. And ultimately, we will discuss the economic values of GDPR investment in Germany interactively.

Jacquelyn came to Berlin more than 20 years ago from Kansas City, USA and has been developing her professional career as an intercultural management trainer, consultant, and coach. While providing her professional services in those areas to German and American multinational companies in Germany, she realized the philosophy of privacy & security management significantly varies depending on where their home countries are. Ever since then, she has been putting her passions in finding the causality between cultural background and privacy & security management taking several multinational companies such as Facebook and Google as examples and utilizing her findings in her privacy & security management consultancy.
