Compliance Week published an article discussing whether it is worthwhile for companies to appeal GDPR breach fines.

Kingsley Hayes, Head of Data Breach, commented: “We are seeing the results of early investigations commenced in 2018/19 that may have lacked the level of expertise and refinement required to ensure challenges were kept to a minimum.

“There is also the salient point that the level of fines set was open to scrutiny and had to be justified. Without a prior history of fines, challenges were always inevitable.”

Kingsley’s comments were published in Compliance Week, 19 August 2021, and can be found here.

In February 2024, our firm changed its name from Keller Postman UK to KP Law.
