Considering the GDPR’s fast-approaching start date (25 May 2018), the Bavarian Data Protection Authority announced that it had sent a fictitious inspection questionnaire to 150 randomly selected Bavarian companies in order to give them an idea of how the authority intends to examine compliance with the GDPR as of May 2018. The questionnaire deals with topics such as data processing registers, transparency and information requirements or data breach notifications. The aim of the questionnaire is to give companies the opportunity to find out how prepared they are for the new data protection law. The Bavarian Data Protection Authority is offering information on its website for companies that have not obtained this questionnaire.
