Closing the data risk gap: How technology enables data protection
The “Benchmark Your Data Protection Controls” survey, conducted by BRYTER and Compliance Week, was administered by email and social media invitation between November and January. In total, 81 completed online submissions were selected for survey analysis.
About 80 percent of respondents worked at companies of 100 or more employees. Nearly half, at 45 percent, identified expressly as compliance practitioners of various ranks within their organizations. The most frequently occurring job titles were compliance manager (11 percent), compliance specialist (10 percent), and chief compliance officer (7 percent).
More than 40 percent of respondents said compliance held its own department within their organization. About 30 percent indicated compliance either sat within the legal department or as part of a combined legal/compliance function. Around 11 percent said compliance was embedded in the business.
