Introduction Text 

Until now,you could be forgiven for thinking that data protection fines have been restricted to larger organisations and headline-grabbing misdemeanors.
However,as we approach the first full year of GDPR as we predicted – the Information Commissioner’s Office(ICO) has started to direct its attention towards lower level offences. And it is beginning to take direct action where it sees the opportunity.
