Of the cases, 94,000 were complaints, 64,000 were data breach notifications and 52 percent had been concluded. U.K. Information Commissioner’s Office Director of Investigations Stephen Eckersley and Jersey Channel Islands Information Commissioner Jay Fedorak both said their agencies have increased staffing since the start of the GDPR.
