In line with the two-year anniversary of the EU General Data Protection Regulation, Belgium's Data Protection Authority released a report on its work since the regulation took effect. The DPA has received 351 complaints and 937 data breach notifications while issuing 59 sanctions, including nine fines totaling 189,000 euros. DPA President David Stevens indicated that while the regulator strives to "strike a balance" between guidance and enforcement, the DPA has purposefully "devoted a great deal of attention to advice and awareness" this year.
