Fines and Penalties GDPR Violation
The GDPR imposes stiff fines on data controllers and processors for non-compliance.
Fines are administered by individual member state supervisory authorities (83.1). The following 10 criteria are to be used to determine the amount of the fine on a non-compliant firm:
- Nature of infringement: number of people affected, damaged they suffered, duration of infringement, and purpose of processing
- Intention: whether the infringement is intentional or negligent
- Mitigation: actions taken to mitigate damage to data subjects
- Preventative measures: how much technical and organizational preparation the firm had previously implemented to prevent non-compliance
- History: (83.2e) past relevant infringements, which may be interpreted to include infringements under the Data Protection Directive and not just the GDPR, and (83.2i) past administrative corrective actions under the GDPR, from warnings to bans on processing and fines
- Cooperation: how cooperative the firm has been with the supervisory authority to remedy the infringement
- Data type: what types of data the infringement impacts; see special categories of personal data
- Notification: whether the infringement was proactively reported to the supervisory authority by the firm itself or a third party
- Certification: whether the firm had qualified under approved certifications or adhered to approved codes of conduct
- Other: other aggravating or mitigating factors may include financial impact on the firm from the infringement
If a firm infringes on multiple provisions of the GDPR, it shall be fined according to the gravest infringement, as opposed to being separately penalized for each provision. (83.3)
However, the above may not offer much relief considering the amount of fines possible:
