Infographic: Are you ready for the GDPR?
The test results
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a stringent EU regulation on privacy protection, which will go into effect in May 2018. As you may know, organizations who fail to comply, or to demonstrate their compliance, may face a hefty fine.
We surveyed almost 200 people in various roles, from IT Managers to Architects, asking them a range of questions to determine whether their organization was prepared for the GDPR. The results so far indicate that more work needs to be done.
For example: The GDPR applies not only to companies headquartered in an EU country, but to all organizations that process data on EU residents. Did you know? 95% of respondents indicated that their organization does business with EU companies and residents. And yet… only HALF of respondents are aware of the GDPR and planning to work on compliance.
