A shot across the bow in France.

“Google Fined $57 Million in Biggest Penalty Yet Under New European Law,” The Wall Street Journal, January 22, 2019.  Fine for failure to properly secure consents to use personal data for ads under GDPR.

Certainly, a Compliance point.  But also goes to Governance (what processes did Google have to operate in compliance with the GDPR?).  And Information, as this is a consent for Google to use someone’s personal data to send ads.

What will this mean for Google?  Fine significantly less than 4% of turnover.  What will this mean for other companies, with somewhat smaller collections of personal data?
