The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force on 25th May 2018. It’s designed to harmonize data privacy laws across Europe and to reshape the way organizations across the region approach data privacy which has major implications for anyone who collects, processes, stores and/or disposes of data.
When we first ran this poll in August 2017, 46% of voters knew GDPR was coming but hadn’t done anything about it, 27% didn’t know about the changes coming and only 27% had already taken action on this.
With around seven weeks to go and potentially large fines for anyone found not to be complying with GDPR, we’d like to see where everyone is with their preparations. Please indicate below and share any thoughts you have on this subject by commenting on this post.
- I hadn’t heard about the coming changes
- I know the changes are coming, but not done anything about it yet
- I know about the changes, and i’ve already taken action
