If GDPR wasn't scary enough - some new latest research is suggesting that businesses will spend 10,300 hours per month (are there that many hours in a month for small businesses?) searching up to 23 databases to deal with the 89 GDPR enquiries they will get each month.
The research – Finding The Missing Link in GDPR Compliance – is based on the views of more than 1,000 senior executives from companies in the UK, France, Germany, Spain and Italy. It finds that, on average, a company will get 89 GDPR enquiries per month, for which they will need to search an average of 23 different databases, each taking about five minutes. The total time spent simply looking for data per month will be more than 10,300 minutes (172 hours) equating to over eight hours of searching per working day – or one employee dedicated solely to GDPR enquiries.
