GDPR En­force­ment Track­er Re­port
What a year for GDPR en­force­ment: 2021/2022 saw vari­ous land­mark cases in­clud­ing: a new re­cord fine of EUR 743 mil­lion; the total amount of all fines since May 2018 ex­ceed­ing the EUR 1 bil­lion mark in sum­mer 2021; and the total num­ber of cases passing 1,000 in early 2022. Land­mark cases were widely re­por­ted, ob­vi­ously draw­ing a lot of pub­lic at­ten­tion and in­creas­ing over­all aware­ness for data pro­tec­tion law. However, there is a GDPR en­force­ment real­ity bey­ond re­cord fines and it may be worth tak­ing a closer look: fo­cus­sing solely on severe fines could lead to fear and even re­luct­ance or ig­nor­ance on com­pli­ance is­sues.We still be­lieve that facts are bet­ter than fear.Our con­tinu­ously up­dated list of pub­licly known GDPR fines in the GDPR En­force­ment Track­er is our 24/7 rem­edy against fear: in con­trast, the an­nu­al GDPR En­force­ment Track­er Re­port (“ET Re­port”) is our deep dive ap­proach and per­mits great­er in­sight in­to the world of GDPR fines.
