So far in 2020, the Belgian Data Protection Authority has been quite active. In the period between January and September 2020, it has issued a total of ten administrative fines (ranging from EUR 1,000 to EUR 600,000) and issued administrative decisions in more than fifty cases, about half of which were published on the DPA’s public website. The large majority of these cases were initiated upon complaint of an individual (against a former employer, a government body, an ex-partner, etc.). Three cases were initiated following an own-initiative inspection by the DPA.

The Loyens & Loeff Data Protection & Privacy Team has prepared updates throughout summer to help you keep up with these decisions. Our tips & tricks have been summarized per topic. Don’t hesitate to reach out if you would like to receive more detailed guidance on any of these topics.
