Data Protection Advisor Jon Baines has contributed the foreword to a new published study by eCase, ‘The impact of GDPR in central government.’
The study analyses central government Data Protection Officers, and found that 70% had seen significant upticks in their workload since GDPR became law, while 40% had received no extra team resources to manage this and 33% were still managing DPRs manually or with support from basic spreadsheet software. An 83% majority said they had, however, experienced an increase in “support and recognition” from their superiors.
Jon said, “I welcome this report as its findings should help inform not just decisions made in government and the public sector, but also across the wider spectrum of private organisations.”
