UK trigger-happy over fines for data breaches compared with Europe

Well the UK ICO issued more fines or prosecutions in the last two months than the Irish one did in the whole of last year. And, apart from a couple of private investigators, the Irish cases were all marketing related.

Given the large number of multinationals with their European base in Ireland, including Facebook and Google, I find it hard to believe that there were no incidents, so my bet is on the latter. I might even venture that the tax revenue from organisations able to select a jurisdiction provides a motivation to be a little flexible with enforcement
