GDPR sanctions defense

Having a good defense against General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) sanctions is a must. The GDPR regulates the imposition of important sanctions. These can range from 4% of the total annual turnover of the non-compliant company to a fine of up to 20 million euros for non-compliance with the established obligations.
