stop data processing
Finally an effective solution to bad practices. Most companies can more than survive fines that are given based on bad practices. But to order the company to stop processing and in essense stop bringing in money to the organization will most definitely bring those bad practices to a halt.

Targeting Habitual Violators
"They will pick a number of truly bad actors and put them out of business with crushing audits, legal proceedings and fines"

It's good to hear that if you are making an effort that you will most likely not receive a drastic punitive assignment. However, I don't mind that GDPR enforcement is targeting a more draconian narrative and trying to remove habitual violators from the ecosystem.

GDPR
Hopefully this law will work out better for the people of Europe and and around the world. Privacy becomes critical obviously for everyone.

Re: stop data processing
Most companies can more than survive fines that are given based on bad practices. That would be one of the concerns I have. That is still ok, fine could be increased at one point I would guess.

Ghostery
I think we already have an answer to the underlying question here: Ghostery.

The company was one of many to send GDPR contact emails -- but the person in charge of that task CC'd everyone instead of BCC'ing everying. The result was massive exposure of individuals' email addresses.

This was made public, and the company has indicated that it will self-report this data leak.

I am sorry for this but could not resist .....

They are giving these legal issues interesting names these days, Who's filing first, what is filing second and i don't know who is issuing the third filing.  WHAT?  i SAID WHO is filing first.  That's what I am trying to find out, WHO is filing first? Yes.  Yes? Precisely.  Oh, precisely is filing first - NO NOTHING OF THE KIND, WHO IS FILING FIRST..
