GDPR: Six Months Later Many Companies Still Don’t Comply

By Dick Weisinger

May 25, 2018.  The deadline for compliance with the EU GDPR regulations.  You probably received a flood of emails leading up to that date, and noticed numerous sites now have popups asking users to accept website cookies when browsing a website.

It turns out though that few companies have been able to meet the strict requirements of GDPR.  A recent survey by Talend also surprisingly found that compliance with GDPR was actually higher by companies located outside of Europe than those inside.  A survey by Yahoo found that more than 60 percent of US companies were in compliance yet 50 percent or less of European companies complied.

Penny Jones, research director at 451 Research, said most companies understand “the importance of GDPR, but many are still not taking their data seriously in terms of the technologies and processes they have in place. As a result, many businesses are falling short of their GDPR obligations. They can lack the proper methods for storing, organizing or retrieving data in line with the regulation’s requirements.”
