Most global workers noticed stricter policies at work as a result of GDPR
A new survey by Snow Software shows that the EU’s General Data Privacy Regulation (GDPR) that went into effect a year ago has led companies to introduce stricter policies to govern how customer data is handled. 57% of employees in the global survey noted this trend.
However, respondents disagreed about what the effects of GDPR on data protection have been. While 39% of people believe that organizations are currently doing a better job at securing private data than was the case before GDPR, most respondents are less optimistic. One in three (34%) people don’t believe the situation has significantly changed, while one in five (20%) respondents actually say data protection has deteriorated since the introduction of the milestone legislation.
