We are all used to surveys these days. Recently, there was a survey that shows organizational uncertainty about preparation for the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which is now less than three months away.
With this survey, enterprise data management firm Solix conducted an online survey with more than 100 companies. The small sample size consisted of all IT professionals. Because of this, it gave some insight into where those departments are:
- Two-thirds of the respondents didn’t know if individuals’ personal data could be purged entirely from their systems.
- Twenty-two percent were not aware they needed to comply with the GDPR if they captured and maintained data of European Union citizens, if they were based outside the U.S. (Many experts say they do.)
