The UK Data Protection Index: December 2021 Report

Over the past 18 months, we have quizzed our panel of Data Protection Officers from across the United Kingdom on a quarterly basis, asking a consistent set of baseline questions. Crucially, in the ever-shifting privacy landscape, this has allowed us to track their changing attitudes and opinions for the first time.

This quarter, we have asked our panel of 486 DPOs for their opinions on budgets, charges for Data Subject Access Requests (DSARs), and the potential impact of the recent DCMS consultation.

We also bring you data and commentary on the levels of confidence in compliance within organisations, the challenges of GDPR compliance, and confidence in the effectiveness of the ICO.
