Now that we’re a year-and-a-half into what has been a seismic shift in the world of data privacy, it’s worth asking: How has the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) been treating you and your organisation?
Based on a survey from May of this year—about a year after the GDPR launched—yours may be one of about half of organisations that meet these massive EU requirements. Security testing firm ImmuniWeb found that half of the 100 most-visited websites in 28 EU member states ended up falling short of the GDPR requirements. And those were the websites with the most traffic. In other words, they’re the companies you’d have expected to be ready by the GDPR launch date.
