It has been a year since the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) compliance deadline kicked in, and in that time the landmark privacy and cybersecurity regulatory rules have made waves worldwide among enterprises with European connections. GDPR has raised the bar for privacy and security awareness at the board level, as well as assured continued increases in security and compliance spending at most large organizations in the coming years.

Of course, the efficacy of the regulation still remains a point of contention. Consumer surveys show that many European citizens are still skeptical about the benefits they've received from GDPR protections so far, and enterprise surveys show that compliance is still a work in progress.

Here are some of the latest statistics that offer up signposts of where we are with GDPR at the one-year anniversary.

point of contention
I can understand the skepticism of EU citizens. If I were in that category what I would love to see is a holistic listing of all companies that deal with EU citizen data. Of those companies, what are they bound to from a compliance standpoint. Essentially if you create this as a high level diagram a citizen could truncate it down to businesses of interest and ensure that they are inline with consumer expectations.
