What's GCHQ's global turnover?

Of course the same applies to private outfits which are set up for the sole purpose of harassing (cold calling), hoovering up data etc, often hidden in layers of "holdings" and "groups" and practically nada on their balance sheets, or all the entities which keep losing citizens' data.

Turnover alone is a very bad metric to determine fines. But hey, it's a good start, because unless something costs serious money, megacorps will not care.
