GDPR: Over 160,000 Violations- Big fines expected

GDPRFor the last 18 months or so since it was implemented GDPR, authorities have been notified of more than 160.000 violations data. The worrying thing is that this number seems to be increasing day by day.

The law firm DLA Piper found that, during the first eight months following the implementation of the GDPR on May 25, 2018, they were averaging 247 reporting violations per day.

"The GDPR has opened the issue of data breach for good. The rate of violations has increased by 12% compared to last year's report and regulations authorities are often involved in fining organizations, "said Ross McKean, a DLA Piper associate protection data in cyberspace.

The GDPR Data Breach Survey also reports the total amount paid by Companies as a fine due to a violation of the GDPR. This amount is € 114 million ($ 126 million / £ 97 million). The largest fine paid to date is € 50 million. This fine was awarded to her Google by the French authorities for violations about the transparency and consent.

The United Kingdom has issued two larger fines for data protection violations, but no agreement has yet been reached with the companies involved on payments.

Last July, h British Airways received a $ 183 million fine due to cyberattacks on systems , which led to the breach of 500.000 customer data.

After an investigation, it was found that the airline was not using enough meters protection.

A day later, a fine of £ 99m was issued to Marriott Hotels for personal data breach data 339 million customers from all over the world.

According to the GDPR, fines can be very high. However, it is believed that only one third of the organizations are fully GDPR compliant.

The € 114 million imposed so far is relatively small compared to the potential maximum fines that can be imposed.

Companies should be very careful, why regulators intend to become much stricter.
