Google gets introduced to a $189k fine in Germany due to Wi-Fi data violation
Hamburg-based data regulator Johannes Caspar has said that this is one of the biggest violations of data protection rules known to him. Interestingly, Germany was actually unable to issue a bigger fine, because their upper limit for such cases is EUR 150 000, or $195 330. As you can imagine, though, Mr. Caspar would like to see this limitation put much higher, in order to make companies think twice before endangering people's confidential information.
Now, if you'd excuse us, we have a walk to take on Champs-Élysées.
