Agile methods are established as a standard for the implementation of software development projects across all industries. The motivation of those involved in the project - and their willingness to take responsibility - is an essential factor for the success of agile procedures. Agile project management - be it Scrum, DSDM, Kanban or others - systematically integrates the prompt feedback of users and thus creates high transparency in progress. The orientation towards achievable objectives, the quick feedback of success as well as the possibilities of co-design directly promote motivation and willingness on the part of the participants to take personal responsibility.Continue
The effectiveness of the sentence: "In relation to national law, the GDPR applies as a matter of priority to all automated processing of personal data as of May 25th, 2018 [...]" is understood by experts.

The new regulations concerning strong customer authentication and secure communication (RTS SCA & SC) under PSD II were published by the EU Commission on November 27, 2017. At first glance two points, in particular, come to mind: On the one hand, the requirements have been worded very generally, meaning that applying these rules to concrete payment processes will prove a major challenge to many market participants. On the other, the underlying security paradigms all appear to be inconsistent with one another.
