Publishing personal data online – Recent data breach examples

The implications of publicly displaying personal information under GDPR.

In his blog “Publicly Displaying Personal Data under GDPR”, Samad Miah at Xcina Consulting has been reading through GDPR enforcement cases across Europe and has uncovered some worrying examples of where personal data has been publicly posted onto notice boards and websites. The cases he reviews illustrate that even when the data controller puts forward compelling reasons for displaying information publicly, the final decision almost always rules in the data subject’s favour, and fines are meted as a result.
