Ireland’s data regulator, Data Protection Commissioner Helen Dixon has imposed a record €1.2 billion fine on Facebook owner Meta, which has its EU headquarters in Dublin, for violating European privacy rules, in a move that takes total penalties against the company above €2 billion.
It follows from a long investigation into transfers by Facebook of Europeans’ personal data to the US.
Meta has also been directed to suspend any future data transfers within five months and told to cease within six months the “unlawful processing, including storage, in the US” of European data transferred in violation of EU law.
