Only 10% of small businesses ready for GDPR, finds FSB

Despite GDPR being just 85 days away from being implemented, up to 90 percent of small businesses in the UK are still unprepapared for the landmark data protection legislation, the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) has warned.

Even though GDPR is less than three months away, 33 percent of small businesses in the UK haven't started preparing for it, and only 35 percent are in the early stages of preparation.

According to a survey conducted by the FSB, only 8 percent of small businesses, that account for a a majority of 5.7 million private sector businesses in the UK, are truly prepared for GDPR, while the rest are either not preparing at all, are in early states of preparation, or are actively preparing for the landmark data protection legislation.
