    New data has discovered that a minute percentage of data breaches closed by the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) since the GDPR came into force have resulted in monetary punishments.

    According to research from personal data security platform, of 11,468 self-reported data breach cases handled by the ICO between May 25 2018 and the end of March 2019, just 29 penalties were handed out – a percentage of 0.25% – and none of them have been under the GDPR but rather the previous Data Protection Act, 1998.
