GDPR Compliance Brings Other Benefits: Cisco Study

The findings of Cisco’s 2019 Data Privacy Benchmark Study(PDF) imply that GDPR compliance has major security and other benefits for companies. Only a small majority (59%) of organizations in the study indicated that they were compliant, while 29% were set to achieve compliance within a year.

Compliant organizations were less likely to have experienced a data breach in the past year than companies that were still on the road to compliance, and especially compared to those that were still far from compliant (74% vs 80% vs 89%).
