What Kind of GDPR Penalties Could I Get?

The various Data Protection Authorities of the European Union have several enforcement powers. In any given case they can issue warnings, compliance orders, or fines up to 20 million euros or 4% of global turnover. The investigations can be disruptive to planned activities and can result in a sizable amount of unplanned work for those affected. Don’t let this happen to you!
