First big GDPR fine hits

We've been watching out for the first big GDPR fine to crop up and with all of the grey areas in the legislation, it was bound to happen.

Google has been fined 50 million euros (£44m) by the French data regulator CNIL, for a breach of the EU's data protection rules.

When you engage with us from here your information will be added to our database to track any further correspondence.
