Data Protection Commission Fines Tusla

July 2020

On the 21st of May 2020, Tusla was issued with a second fine by the Data Protection Commission (DPC) for a breach of data protection rules. 

It relates to a breach notified to the DPC in November 2019 regarding an unauthorised disclosure of sensitive personal data. The disclosure was made to an alleged abuser and the data was subsequently posted on social media.

The fine for the three breaches totalled €75,000.

Under GDPR, a company that breaks privacy laws can be fined up to 4% of global revenue or €20 million, whichever is higher.
