Many lawyers and vendors focus on the penalties under the GDPR: for most companies a maximum fine of €20,000,000. However in practice less than 1% of companies, known by the ICO to be in breach, are fined. But how many breaches is the Information Commissioner expecting to be reported and how many (or rather few) breaches will translate into fines and why? Dai Davis explains why the penalties are not what they have been hyped up to be: Dai put the legislation into its place with a pragmatic approach. Dai also explained which aspects of GDPR are important and which unimportant, and the reasons why. He explained why companies should work towards compliance rather than try and become compliant.
