Survey: 160,000 Data Breach Notifications Since GDPR


More than 160,000 data breach notifications have been reported across the EU since the GDPR came into force on 25 May 2018, according to a DLA Piper survey. The fines, however, have not proven to have a material impact on large companies as some predicted when the law was enacted.



The most notable number regarding data breaches is the one not reported. 160,000 sounds like a large number, but it represents only a fraction of actual breaches that are publicly reported, in part because the largest number of breaches are not known by companies.
