* The Hellenic Data Protection Authority (HDPA) recently imposed a EUR 150,000 fine on the international consulting firm PwC for its violations of the new European data protection regulations (the General Data Protection Regulations, or GDPR).
* One year after the entry into force of the GDPR, it was evident that the enforcement activity of privacy protection agencies around the world had been focused on companies’ business doings. As a result, companies rarely invest resources in complying with the requirements of privacy protection laws in terms of their employees’ data processing.
