It has been found that many organisations are not doing all they can to protect data privacy with there being a lack of transparency in how businesses store personal data, according to PwC’s 2018 Global State of Information Security Survey (GSISS). It was found only 51% of respondents have an accurate inventory of where personal data for employees and customers are collected, transmitted, and stored. When it comes to third parties who handle personal data of customers and employees, less than half (46%) conduct compliance audits to ensure they have the capacity to protect such information. And a similar number (46%) say their organisation requires third parties to comply with their privacy policies.
