In the latest edition of Privacy Laws & Business UK, Victoria provides her views on how the ICO has sought to enforce the GDPR.

Data Privacy

Victoria begins her article with a summary of what the GDPR seeks to do, namely to ‘strengthen the rights of individuals and the powers of regulators’ whilst adopting a deliberately anti-trust approach to fines.

Her piece goes on to compare the various approaches taken by other data protection authorities in Europe such as France, Spain and Ireland.

Victoria also details specific measures the ICO has taken to enforce the terms of the GDPR. She cites the first fine issued by the regulator (against Doorstep Dispensaree Ltd) in December 2019, the fine’s implications and what it teaches us about the ICO’s overall approach to GDPR matters.
