61 percent of companies have not started GDPR implementation

According to research conducted by TrustArc, most companies are not ready for the General Data Protection Regulation.
In a survey, "Privacy and the EU GDPR," TrustArc polled 204 privacy professionals and found that 61 percent have not begun the process of GDPR implementation, while 23 percent said they have begun implementation, 11 percent stated their implementation is "well underway," and just four percent claimed to be fully compliant with GDPR.
Of the 61 percent who have not started implementation, 39 percent are working on their preliminary plan, 18 percent have a plan in place, but have not started implementation, and four percent haven't started working on a plan at all.
