E3 accidentally leaks info of over 2,000 journos
The organisation behind the expo stated their regret, promising the occurrence wouldn't repeat any further.
As first discovered by YouTube content creator Sophia Narwitz, the E3-it was reported-accidentally leaked the information of more than 2,000 journalists and analysts attending the game expo. The ESA has since removed the spreadsheet from its site. But it did not do that before other people were able to download it.
The ESA website was likely also accessible from Europe, and it contained info for European members of the press-which could turn into a GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) issue. That is the EU regulatory framework that obliges any company that collects data to meet certain assurances of security.
The maximum fine for a GDPR violation is €20mn.
