The State of Privacy and Personal Data Protection, 2020-2022

The Gartner “The State of Privacy'' report is published every year and a half. Their analysis suggests that “technology-driven capabilities supporting the facets of a progressive privacy program have developed substantially over the past 18 months, yet adoption lags, exposing organizations to expensive manual processes, fines and potential litigation.”

According to the Gartner research, “with more countries introducing modern privacy laws in the same vein as the GDPR, we have crossed a threshold where the European baseline for handling personal information is now the de facto global standard”. Leaders that enforce this standard “will allow their businesses to differentiate themselves in an increasingly competitive market and grow unhindered”.

Gartner predicts, "By 2024, more than 80% of organizations worldwide will face modern privacy and data protection requirements." With a record number of privacy policies being enacted during 2020, global organizations need to tighten their control over data so that they do not sacrifice their development budgets to keep up with external pressures. We are confident this report will help understand the current developments per country and region and will enable organizations of all sizes to implement cost optimization strategies for an efficient adoption of privacy capabilities.
