Ireland publishes note on data breach trends
Ireland’s Data Protection Commission has published information note on data breach trends from the first year of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
The total number of breach notifications received by the DPC during that time amounted to 5,818. Of all breach notifications received by the DPC, approximately 4% have been classified a ‘non-breaches’ and did not meet the definition of a personal data breach.
a total of 13% failed to satisfy the requirement of notification to the DPC ‘without undue delay’ (normally within 72 hours), as required under the provisions of GDPR.
