RGPD y su aplicacion en España

But what is the status of the GDPR today? We explain it briefly in three key points. Privacy by Design Guide.

1. It is heavily penalized in Spain, and with significant fines.

Since the activation of the GDPR, and up to the date of this article, 185 sanctions have been imposed in Spain, which have resulted in fines for companies totaling 15.9 million euros. The number of formalized sanctions is almost four times that of the second country on the list, Romania, with 48, or Italy, the third, with 44. In Europe as a whole, fines during this period amounted to 275 million euros.

2. Lack of security measures, among the main reasons for penalties.

Data processing and non-compliance with the derived technical measures are the main reasons for which most sanctions have been imposed in Europe within the scope of the GDPR. Due to this, more and more companies are looking for specialized partners to accompany them in their digital transformation processes and to guide them so that they do not fall into possible sanction files for the inadequate treatment of personal data.
