Bulgarian DPA fines bank €500,000 for data breach

Bulgaria’s data protection authority (DPA) – Commission for Personal Data Protection – has imposed a 1 million levs (about 500,000 euro) fine on DSK Bank for a data breach that impacted upon more than 33,000 of its clients.

During the course of its month-long investigation the DPA has found that DSK Bank did not apply the relevant technical and organisational measures in order to ensure the protection of the personal data of individuals and third persons connected to them.
