Optimization of the Regulatory Concept in Data Protection Law

Optimization of the Regulatory Concept in Data Protection Law

This base study outlines the current status of suggestions and thoughts how to optimize the regulatory concept for data protection regulation in national and respective international literature.

"Regulatory concept” as a term not only involves legal norms but also the underlying regulatory instruments (e.g. self-regulation, co-regulation, command-and-control regulation), technical measures on both sides, user and data controller/processor, aspects of data security, training and internet literacy as well as contributions of corporate responsibility.

The study focuses on the following issues: dialogue between data regulator and regulates, dialogue as a regulatory instrument, dialogue as a key element in "privacy by design”; transparency in data protection, including informed consent and the precautionary principle; the value of data and commercialisation; personal identifiable data as the link for data protection law; public vs. private data protection law; organisational aspects in data protection regulation; co-regulation, § 38a BDSG; flanking measures, internet literacy, CSR.

Examined are models and concepts, but not individual data protection related questions. The topical areas will be published in analysis papers.
