What happens if my company does not respond within 30 days?
If a business breaches its obligations under the GDPR, it may be subject to an administrative fine of up to €20 million or 4% of the undertaking’s worldwide annual turnover, whichever is higher. Regulatory bodies will consider several factors when determining the level of fine, including the nature, gravity and duration of the breach; the level of damage suffered by individuals; and any action taken by the organisation to mitigate the damage suffered by individuals. Regulatory agencies will also have the ability to impose a wide range of sanctions, including specific compliance orders and a ban on processing personal data. Additionally, organisations that breach the GDPR may be subject to private claims for compensation by individuals or consumer protection bodies on behalf of individuals.
