- The Irish Data Protection Commission fined Meta Platforms 17 million euros over a series of 12 data breaches from June to December 2018. A DPC investigation determined Meta violated Articles 5 and 24 of the EU General Data Protection Regulation related to processing of data tied to the breach notifications. While two European supervisory authorities raised objections, the DPC said, “consensus was achieved through further engagement.”
- The DPC published a report with statistics on its handling of cross-border complaints under the GDPR's one-stop-shop mechanism.
- Irish Council for Civil Liberties Senior Fellow Johnny Ryan challenged before Ireland’s High Court the DPC’s alleged failure to investigate a 2018 complaint about Google and IAB Europe’s use of “real time bidding.”
