Perception And Reality of GDPR Readiness In The UK, France And Germany

On 25 May 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will come into effect globally. The new regulation is designed to strengthen and unify data protection for everyone within the European Union (EU). They also regulate how personal data is exported outside the EU.

With six months to go until GDPR comes into force, Proofpoint commissioned a benchmarking survey across 1,500 IT decision-makers in the UK, France and Germany to answer three key questions:

  • How are organisations are preparing for GDPR compliance?
  • How advanced are their implementation plans?
  • How confident are they of achieving their goals by May 2018?

This report highlights the results of the survey. We explore how businesses are preparing for the impending regulation and we analyse differences between industry sectors to see which are most at risk of non-compliance.
