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 present to you the seventh 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, this quarter we have asked our panel of 497 DPOs about a range of issues, including the challenges presented by the UK and EU GDPRs; levels of compliance within their organisations; the effectiveness of the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO); and the potential impact of the upcoming reforms to UK data protection law.

The next survey results will be published in June 2022. If you are a privacy professional and you would like to join the panel and add your voice to future surveys, please click here.
