GDPR

A new survey sponsored by McDermott Will & Emery and conducted by the Ponemon Institute found that 40 percent of nearly 1,000 U.S. and European companies polled do not expect to meet General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) compliance requirements by May 25.

Companies have struggled over the last few years to figure out even what GDPR compliance is. Forty-seven percent of those polled said they did not know where to begin their path to compliance.

Despite the high levels of anxiety that companies seem to feel around GDPR preparedness, especially given the regulation’s steep fines for noncompliance, McDermott partner Mark Schreiber finds the number of companies who do not believe they will be prepared for GDPR compliance by the deadline “unsurprising.”
