GD­PR En­force­ment Tra­cker Re­port
A warm wel­co­me... ...to the fourth edi­ti­on of the GD­PR En­force­ment Tra­cker Re­port – the an­ni­vers­a­ry edi­ti­on ce­le­bra­ting fi­ve ye­ars of GD­PR.In the fi­ve ye­ars sin­ce the GD­PR be­ca­me ap­p­lica­ble its power­ful frame­work for im­po­sing fi­nes has cer­tain­ly hel­ped to rai­se awa­ren­ess and en­cou­ra­ge com­p­li­an­ce ef­forts – just as the Eu­ro­pean le­gis­la­tor in­ten­ded. At the sa­me ti­me, the risk of fi­nes of up to EUR 20 mil­li­on or 4% of a com­pa­ny’s glo­bal an­nu­al tur­no­ver can al­so lead to fe­ar and re­luc­tan­ce or ignoran­ce about com­p­li­an­ce is­su­es.We still be­lie­ve that facts are bet­ter than fe­ar.This is why we con­ti­nuous­ly up­date our list of pu­bli­cly known fi­nes in the GD­PR  En­force­ment Tra­cker and star­ted the GD­PR En­force­ment Tra­cker Re­port as an an­nu­al de­ep di­ve ap­proach to pro­vi­de you with mo­re in­sights in­to the world of GD­PR fi­nes.As in the three pre­vious edi­ti­ons, the GD­PR En­force­ment Tra­cker Re­port starts with the Exe­cu­ti­ve Sum­ma­ry (al­so avail­able as a PDF ver­si­on), fol­lo­wed by the “Num­bers and Fi­gu­res” sec­tion and the “En­force­ment In­sights per busi­ness sec­tor” (al­so in­clu­ding the over­ar­ching em­ploy­ment ca­te­go­ry. The “En­force­ment In­sights per coun­try” pro­vi­de back­ground on the spe­ci­fic en­force­ment frame­work un­der na­tio­nal law. So­me re­marks on our me­tho­do­lo­gy can be found at the very end of the re­port.
