ds² – Leading Experts for Integrated Data Protection

ds2 – pronounced ds squared – is the most renowned management consultancy for process-integrated data protection in Germany. Since 2001, the now ten-strong team around managing director Thomas Spaeing has been supporting not only corporations and corporate groups, but also medium-sized businesses and start-ups with digitisation and compliance. They act in a variety of roles as an external data protection officer (DSB), as data protection coordinators, as project managers for optimising all types of corporate processes and as an advisory board for data protection at management level.

Efficient Solutions

ds2’s aim is to develop highly efficient solutions that achieve clients’ objectives and comply with European, German and industry-specific data protection laws. They benefit from the experience gained from managing numerous demanding projects and from their close cooperation with the data protection authorities of federal and state governments.

Excellent Expertise

The consultants from ds² can draw on many years of experience, are proficient in litigation and have comprehensive knowledge of the industry. They are certified by UDIS (Ulm Academy for Data Protection and IT Security) and TÜV Rheinland (certified data protection auditor), among others, and also in part in the field of IT security (in accordance with TISP, Teletrust Security Professional).

Pioneer in Data Protection

Thomas Spaeing founded ds2 in 2001 and has been managing director since then. Twenty years ago, the graduate mechanical engineer and industrial engineer was still managing director of a Bielefeld-based automotive supplier. At the end of the 1990s, he completed his training as a certified data protection and IT security expert at the Ulm Academy UDIS. On the basis of his multiple qualifications and his understanding of what is required in practice, Spaeing subsequently developed the concept for integrated data protection.
