Discover DeFine, a GDPR fine calculator – Privacy protection

To print this article, all you need to do is be registered or log in to

On May 12, 2022, the European Data Protection Board published guidelines with a methodology for calculating fines for violations of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). These guidelines were subject to public consultation until June 27, 2022.

Since these guidelines are likely to influence future decisions of data protection authorities in the European Union, Keller and Heckman LLP has developed DeFine, a GDPR fine calculator tool based on this methodology. It is available online and for free here.

While we hope organizations won’t need to use DeFine too often to deal with regulators, it can serve as an internal company awareness mechanism to improve understanding of data privacy risks.

Please do not hesitate to contact the creator, Peter Craddock, or any other Keller and Heckman LLP contact if you have any questions or suggestions, want to share feedback about DeFine, or need assistance with privacy or data security.

The content of this article is intended to provide a general guide on the subject. Specialist advice should be sought regarding your particular situation.
