GDPR spurs cybersecurity improvements at biggest public companies

The introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) spurred the UK’s biggest public companies to improve the measures they put in place to protect data, according to a UK government survey.

“The 2018 Health Check indicates that GDPR has increased the attention FTSE 350 boards give to cyber risk,” the government’s survey report said. “Over three quarters of businesses (77%) report that board discussion and management of cyber risk has increased since the introduction of GDPR, and more than half (55%) of these businesses have increased measures as a result.”
