VTech hack fallout: What is a kid's privacy worth? About 22 cents – FTC


What a small fine

If this data hack impacted Europeans and it was to occur when the GDPR legislation is active (after May 25th 2018) then the maximum fine that the EU data commissioners could impose is EUR20m. That would be more reasonable and much more likely to focus the minds of these (and other) directors.
