Meet the Experts Behind the Data Privacy Company
2B Advice was founded by legal and privacy experts in 2003 in Germany. Today, 2B Advice has offices in the United States, Germany, Italy, France, and Slovakia. Our organization’s success is built on our team’s education, experience, and energy.
Marcus Belke founded the company on the premise that while privacy compliance is complex, managing it should not be. His vision and deep expertise in privacy and data protection stems from the deep roots of German belief in the purpose of personal data protection and safeguarding of personal information. In 1970, the German Datenschutzgesetzgebung became the first law on data protection in the world. As the predecessor to GDPR, the German rules regarding the duty to appoint a data protection officer were even stricter than those in GDPR. It is this long legacy of data protection that 2B Advice carries forth around the globe as more countries enact new privacy regulations.
