Sector: Cross-sector | Reading time: 15 min | Audience Role: CISO, Management |
This report offers insights into the enforcement trends of the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) over the last five years. It helps organizations evaluate their compliance vulnerabilities by identifying high-risk countries, sectors, and common violation types.
Our analysis shows that Spain, Italy, and Germany operate more active GDPR enforcement, posing a higher risk of prosecution for organizations operating in these countries.
Sectors such as industry and commerce, media, telecoms, and broadcasting face a greater likelihood of sanctions and higher fines. The transportation and energy sectors also face elevated penalties.
QuoIntelligence’s analysis underlines that common violations include inadequate consent, insufficient data processing justification, and inadequate data security measures. These infractions receive intensified Data Protection Authority (DPA) focus, creating compliance challenges for companies.
