EU study, Italian citizens among the least aware of GDPR

EU study, Italian citizens among the least aware of GDPR

Italy, with Greece and Belgium, is among the EU countries where there is less awareness about the existence of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), worse only France does. This is the finding of a Eurobarometer published by the European Commission on the occasion of the anniversary of the entry into force of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

According to the survey, the countries where citizens are most informed are Sweden (90%), the Netherlands (87%), Poland (86%), the Czech Republic (85%) and Slovakia (83%). At the bottom of the list are Greece and Cyprus (58% each); Belgium (53%); Italy (49%); and France (44%). The study also shows that 57% of Europeans are aware that there is an authority in their country responsible for protecting their personal data rights: 20% more than in February 2015.

More awareness among citizens “is a very encouraging sign. Almost six out of ten people know that there is a data protection authority in their country.

This is a significant increase compared to 2015, when it was four out of ten people. The GDPR provides authorities with the tools to combat breaches. In one year, the newly established European Data Protection Board registered more than 400 cross-border cases in Europe. And this confirms the additional benefit offered by the regulation, as data protection does not stop at national borders,” European Commission Vice-President for the Digital Single Market Andrus Ansip and Head of Justice Vera Jourová stressed in a joint statement.
