UK Data Protection Index


The UK DP index, launched by The DPO Centre and Data Protection World Forum at the end of July 2020, is based on a survey of a panel of UK data protection and privacy professionals that is repeated quarterly to monitor their evolving opinions and industry trends.

We are delighted to bring you the fifth Index survey report from the ground-breaking UK Data Protection Index. By asking our panel of privacy professionals the same questions each quarter, we can see how the priorities, challenges and attitudes of DPOs across the United Kingdom are evolving over time as the regulatory landscape becomes ever more complex and changeable.

In addition to our regular set of questions, this quarter we have also quizzed our panel on whether their organisations conduct data protection refresher training for their staff and, if they do, what methods they use to deliver this training. We have also asked our panel to rate their organisation’s level of compliance by category, to provide a deeper level of insight.

The next survey results will be published in December. If you are a privacy professional and you would like to join the panel and add your voice to future surveys, please click here.
