Committee of MEPs back stiffer sanctions for data protection law breaches.

How Much??

Data protection authorities would be obliged to at the very least issue a warning to businesses that breach the Regulation for the first time or which have engaged in “non-intentional non-compliance”. In other cases the businesses could be forced to open themselves up to regulator data protection audits, or they could be fined up to €100m or 5% of their annual global turnover for a failure to “comply with the obligations” laid out under the new framework.
