ICO receives record number of breach notifications

In UK the number of self-reported data breaches has increased by 29% from 2,447 last year to 3,156 this year. Under the GDPR, organisations are obliged to report serious data breaches to the data protection authority (ICO in UK). In June, after the GDPR had entered into force, the ICO received 1,700 notifications which is a sharp increase compared with previous levels (around 360-390 breach notifications per month).
