Subject line: 70% of businesses are still behind on GDPR

It’s now been five months since the GDPR came into force, but a huge number of companies are struggling to meet their obligations.

According to the latest figures, 70% of businesses are unable to address individuals’ requests for copies of their personal data – a core element of Articles 15 and 20 of the regulation.

Others said they had struggled to get their policies and procedures up to scratch and were adopting a head in the sand approach.

As of last month (September 2018) the Information Commissioners Office – the watchdog overseeing the GDPR in the UK – was yet to prosecute any non-compliant organisation. But that doesn’t mean they’re not going to, and it’s expected that those falling behind will be identified in the very near future.
