The EU General Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO), which was implemented at the end of May 2018, caused quite a stir and also caused quite a stir. Now, the results of a survey conducted by the Bundesverband Digitale Wirtschaft (BVDW for short) confirmed why the GDPR was criticized : 5 percent of digital companies already received a warning, 28 percent of the companies surveyed are convinced that they will soon receive a warning. "The fact is that the GDPR has mainly led to uncertainty, but it is still not clear how to apply the new regulations," said Thomas Duhr, the BVDW vice-president. "On the one hand, the unclear formulations and, on the other hand, the contradictory requirements are problematic." The insecurity that is now ruling paralyzes the entire economy. "
