The majority of business are failing to comply with GDPR

According to a survey conducted by California based company Talend, 70% of companies surveyed couldn’t fulfill data access and portability requests within the GDPR-specified one-month time limit.

The research was based on personal data requests made to 103 companies based or operating in Europe across industries including retail, media, technology, public sector, finance, and travel. Conducted between June 1 and September 3, 2018, Talend assessed responses to GDPR Article 15 (“Right of access by the data subject”) and Article 20 (“Right to data portability”) requests, monitoring areas including GDPR references in privacy policies, and the speed and completeness of responses.
