Ireland's Data Protection Commission announced a 265 million euro fine to Meta over alleged EU General Data Protection Regulation violations. The fine is the third-largest GDPR penalty served to date, following a 405 million euro fine from Ireland to Meta in September. The DPC's initial investigation, opened in April 2021, examined the alleged exposure of a data set of personal information from Meta's Facebook. The probe concluded the platform violated Articles 25(1) and 25(2) of the GDPR. The decision also requires Meta to "bring its processing into compliance by taking a range of specified remedial actions within a particular timeframe."
