03 Feb Report Says Many Organizations Still Not GDPR Ready
A recent report by market research company Forrester found that a lot of organizations are still not ready for the EU GDPR which will be coming into force May this year.
Forrester says that only a quarter of organizations across the bloc may be ready for compliance, while 22% are only expecting to be compliant within 12 months. 11% are said to still be in preparation for compliance, while 8% have not yet even begun and may be unaware of the new rules.
The study additionally revealed that organizations in the retail and media sector were the least prepared, even though these are some that handle the largest amount of personal data.
