Did you hear about one of the GDPR fines, the massive 380,000 euro fine that a sports betting company recently faced for breaching General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) rules? This unfortunate incident acts as a stark reminder of the potential financial and reputational risks connected with non-compliance.
The Cost of Non-compliance
The sports betting company fell foul on several counts. These included:
- Processing Personal Data without Legal Grounds: They handled copies of bank cards without proven legal reasons.
- Failure to Notify Data Subjects: They did not inform their clients about this data processing.
- Lack of Adequate Security Measures: They failed to implement appropriate measures during the creation of a new business process.
- Inadequate Data Protection: They didn’t apply encryption measures for data stored in their databases and did not regularly evaluate their security measures’ effectiveness.
These serious breaches led to not only a hefty fine but also considerable reputational damage.
