Solix survey supplies more evidence of GDPR unreadiness
Two-thirds of responding IT pros didn’t even know if personal data could be purged entirely from their systems.
Another day, and another survey showing organizational uncertainty about preparation for the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), now less than three months away.
In this one, enterprise data management firm Solix conducted an online survey with more than 100 companies. While the sample was relatively small, the respondents were all IT professionals, thus giving 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.)
