German Supervisory Authorities have issued 41 fines since the EU General Data Protection Regulation (‘GDPR’) became enforceable in May 2018. The highest fine in a single case was EUR 80,000, and the majority of fines (33) originated from the state of North-Rhine Westphalia.

Benjamin Beck and Dr. Ulrich Worm discuss the GDPR enforcement action that has been taken across German states since the Regulation came into effect.
