Number of Data Breach Notifications (Art 33 GDPR)

Fecha de la petición: 23-10-2018

Estado: Asignado


Dear Sirs,

I am writing on behalf of DAC Beachcroft LLP, an international law firm with particular expertise in data protection and cyber security.

We are currently conducting a market analysis of post-GDPR increases of data breach notifications.
Such an increase is expected in light of the change from the old European Data Protection Directive (95/46/EC), where there was no obligation for data controllers to notify parties of data breaches, to Articles 33 and 34 of the GDPR, providing for mandatory notifications to yourselves (as a supervisory authority) and in some cases, data subjects.

In light of the above, we are writing to kindly enquire whether you have any statistics of either/and the following:

1. Numbers of data breach notifications between 25 May 2018 and today or any earlier date of this summer; and/or
2. Comparable numbers of data breach notifications for the same time period for 2017 or any other previous year; and/or
3. A percentage-expressed increase of data breach notification (in case you are not at liberty to provide specific numbers); and/or
4. Any other statistical information related to the expected increase of data breach notifications post-GDPR which you may have obtained over the course of the summer and up to today.

I would like to thank you in advance for your much appreciated cooperation with this matter.

Should you have any queries regarding this request, please do not hesitate to contact me further.

Kind regards,

Aleksandar Dimitrov
