Survey results indicate importance of transparency

A recent survey carried out for the Information Commissioner’s Office indicates a lack of trust and confidence on the part of the public when it comes to businesses and organisations processing their personal data. However, the survey does show that public bodies are more trusted than private organisations with 53% having trust in the police and 49% in government departments and organisations. The statistics reveal that there is certainly room for improvement; compliance measures in respect of the GDPR are a valuable opportunity to make this happen.
