When the GDPR regulations went into full force in May 2018, it came a bit like a shock. While people tried to make everything as GDPR-proof as possible, it felt as if no one really knew what is enough and how hard how hard possible fines would hit. I really enjoyed this week’s TidyTuesday to explore the data to answer the question.

I generated an annual map for the countries in the data and colored it by the cumulated fine (standardized by the cases per country).

The code is available on my GitHub. You also find a larger version of the figure here.
