Thursday, 21 November 2019 The most surprising Grammy nominations ever | Clever Number This goes beyond winners and losers. Sometimes the biggest surprises

The law firm DLA Piper also said that 160,000 data breaches have been reported in this time -- most of them coming from the UK, Germany or the Netherlands. The last year has seen an increase in breaches reported by 12.6 per cent compared to the first eight months of the GDPR.

The GDPR came into force not only as a powerful European data privacy law with the ability to fine companies up to 4 per cent of their global annual revenue.

A few minutes in fact.

Either due to behind-the-scenes politicking, a dearth of worthy honorees or honest preference, some shocking names – both good and bad – have slipped through the nominating process over the years. Here are 32 nominees that raised many an eyebrow.

The largest fine resulting from the law was the 50 million euro punishment ($57 million) on Google in France for a lack of transparency. (Though to put that figure in context, Google's parent company Alphabet was recently valued at $1 trillion). However, the law firm's study did not count the proposed 183 million pound ($238 million) fine on IAG, which owns British Airways in the UK -- if carried out, that would be a record fine.
