An investigation, conducted across Europe, revealed a record year, with the total amount of fines issued from 28 January 2023 to today amounting to €1.78 billion, an increase of 14% compared to the previous year.
In terms of the value of sanctions, Italy ranks 4th in Europe after Ireland, Luxembourg and France. An unenviable ranking that should stimulate deep reflection on the security of personal data, especially on the occasion of European Data Protection Day which is celebrated, like every year, on January 28th.
