By: Carla ArendSenior Program Director, European Software

On-line Presentation


This IDC Survey includes the results from IDC's 2017 Western Europe GDPR Survey focused on cloud service usage.

IDC's Western Europe Privacy & Data Security research team conducted a survey among 560 senior decision makers and influencers for GDPR (e.g., IT, compliance, legal departments) in March 2017. The sample quota consisted of nine countries, nine vertical industries, and seven business segments. Only companies with 250+ employees were eligible to participate in this survey.

This IDC Survey analyzes the impact of the incoming GDPR on cloud services usage. Other topics covered in the survey include enterprises' readiness to comply with GDPR, from investment priorities and technology deployments, to data governance and strategy, challenges, and outsourcing plans.
