Japanese Firms Struggle to Comply with GDPR

According to a recent poll by Reuters, only a handful of companies in Japan were confident to say that they are already equipped to deal with more onerous rules of the GDPR, such as those concerning data breaches and accommodating customer requests for personal data.

The survey, conducted June 4-15, found that only a quarter of Japanese businesses were able to make progress on complying with some of the easier requirements of Europe’s new data privacy rules, while 20% say that they are still planning to do so.

Reuters polled 539 big and medium-sized businesses, 215 of which chose to respond anonymously to questions about GDPR so they can express opinions more freely.
