GDPR Non-Compliance Penalties

Non-compliance with the new GDPR regulations can mean severe financial penalties from the Information Commissioners Office (ICO). Previously, the maximum fines were a hefty half a million pounds (£500,000 GBP). However, now the fines could be much higher and could result in penalties of €20 million Euros or 4% of your annual turnover. Enough to put some organisations out of business.
