Bit­kom sur­vey on the imple­men­ta­ti­on sta­tus of the GDPR

The Ger­man asso­cia­ti­on Bit­kom, an asso­cia­ti­on of a lar­ge num­ber of com­pa­nies in the digi­tal eco­no­my, has – alre­a­dy in Sep­tem­ber 2017 – con­duc­ted a sur­vey in Ger­ma­ny on the sta­tus of the imple­men­ta­ti­on of the GDPR per­for­med.

The sur­vey reve­a­led, that only 13% of the com­pa­nies have star­ted to imple­ment the GDPR had star­ted or com­ple­ted. The fact that the share in year ear­lier was 8% shows that enga­ge­ment with the topic is picking up speed, but only slowly. 

After all, around half of the com­pa­nies sta­ted that they were deal­ing with the issue. Of this half, in turn, around half (total i.e. approx. 25%) at most 10% of the neces­sa­ry work com­ple­ted.

This cle­ar­ly shows that the imple­men­ta­ti­on work is still in its infan­cy. In Switz­er­land, the pic­tu­re will be no dif­fe­rent – on the con­tra­ry. For the com­pa­nies that are only now start­ing imple­men­ta­ti­on, this at least has the advan­ta­ge that opi­ni­ons, tem­pla­tes and working tools alre­a­dy exist on more topics.
