More than 200 senior business and IT decision-makers with GDPR responsibility in the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, the Nordics and Benelux were surveyed by telephone (CATI) for this study. The sample comprises companies with more than 250 employees operating in the manufacturing industry and public sector as well as in the area of services, trade and transport.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is now a reality for all businesses that control or process data about or relating to EU citizens. We wanted to find out how ready businesses were regarding GDPR and also how it will impact their future business operations. GDPR comes at a time when all organisations are grappling with digital transformation, cloud, shadow IT and other major shifts in business computing. Data lies at the heart of all these. It is hoped that GDPR alignment will enable organisations to manage these better and take business advantage of them all. There is much in our findings to be optimistic that they will.
