Six months on from the implementation of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), there’s an alarming amount of ostrich activity going on. Recent research has shown that 70% of companies are still not fully compliant and are yet to get their heads

company Fellowes found that 17% of employees still haven’t been provided with new data protection guidance, and one in ten don’t know who in their organisation is responsible for the GDPR. A further 33% admitted to regularly leaving confidential data unattended.
