- When asked how far along they were in achieving GDPR compliance, only 29% said they had implemented all necessary changes
- 59% of respondents were aware of the changes to DSARs (data subject access requests) but only 29% had plans to adapt their processes to address this. Responding to DSARs correctly is extremely important; if they are managed incorrectly, data subjects can lodge complaints and fines can be issued

Although just 29% of respondents considered themselves compliant with the GDPR, more than 50% had procedures in place to notify their supervisory authority and individuals should a breach occur.
