Majority of Workers Still Concerned About Data Protection on First Anniversary of GDPR, According to New Survey

When enforcement of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) went into effect on May 25, 2018, it had worldwide implications on data protection and privacy legislation. One year later, there are conflicting sentiments from the global workforce about whether the regulation has been effective, according to a new survey released by Snow Software, the global leader in technology intelligence solutions. The survey, which polled 3,000 professionals in the United States, Europe and Asia Pacific region, found that only 39% of respondents feel their personal data is better protected since GDPR enforcement began. Another 34% indicated that data protection seemed the same, while 20% are unsure and 6% actually believe their personal data is less protected than it was prior to enforcement.
