06 Feb Survey Shows Canadian Businesses Not Ready for GDPR
A new small-scale global survey by Commvault recently showed that only 12% of Canadian businesses may be prepared for the GDPR which will be taking effect in May this year.
According to Matt Tyrer, senior manager & solutions marketing for Americas at Commvault in Ottawa, a significant number of Canadian companies have the impression that the new privacy regime will not apply to them.
Tyrer adds that no business is exempted, and that the GDPR does not consider the scale of the business, but only how the data of European citizens are handled. He also advised companies to ensure visibility into their data as data may exist beyond the confines of the enterprise due to the proliferation of endpoint, mobile devices and cloud services.
