79% of organizations want a federal privacy law amid lack of compliance


There is a significant enthusiasm for a federal privacy law amid organizations’ lack of ability to comply with data privacy rules stemming from both mushrooming government regulations and complex data sharing agreements between companies.

Organizations are also overconfident in knowing where private data resides, and tend to use inadequate tools such as spreadsheets to track it.

Integris Software’s 2019 Data Privacy Maturity Study gathered detailed responses from 258 mid to senior executives from IT, general management, and risk and compliance departments at US companies with at least 500 employees (62 percent had 5,000 or more employees) to assess how they manage private data.
