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 tenth 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 over 550 DPOs about a range of issues, including how the proposed UK data protection reforms will affect organisations; the level of compliance within their own organisations; and how likely organisations are to start using machine learning or artificial intelligence in a meaningful way within the next three years.

The next survey results will be published in June 2023. If you are a privacy professional and you would like to join the panel and add your voice to future surveys, please click here.
