Because of user data breach, Ireland signs a heavy fine on Meta

Due to 12 user data breaches, the Data Protection Commission of Ireland levied a fine of €17 million (US$18.6 million).

Meta has broken many sections of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), according to the committee, according to the technical website Engaget. “Adequate technical and organizational measures to enable it to demonstrate the security measures it has implemented to secure EU user data” are lacking in the European Union.

Because the inquiry related to a “cross-border” operation, the commission received notifications of the data breach in 2018, and before the sanction was issued, it conferred with other European agencies under the Public Policy Review Guidelines.
