Ireland’s Data Protection Commission has received more than 1,300 “concerns or complaints” since the EU General Data Protection Regulation went into place, the Irish Examiner reports. The agency has also been notified by entities of 60 personal data breaches as it begins to sort out the complaints under the new rules. The DPC said 10 cases are in the assessment stage and fall under the GDPR, while the remainder of the complaints, made before 25 May, will be covered by past Irish data protection laws. “These [10 cases] relate to both national and multinational organisations,” the DPC said in a statement. “In addition, since [25 May], the DPC has been notified of three cases by other EU data protection authorities under the new EU ‘one stop shop’ cooperation mechanism.”
