88 percent of organizations worldwide plan to drive employee behavioral changes related to GDPR compliance via training, rewards, penalties, and contracts, according to a study from Veritas Technologies, a multi-cloud data management company.

The study produced several additional findings related to how organizations plan to address GDPR compliance. 91 percent admitted that they do not currently have a culture of good data governance or GDPR compliance. Additionally, 47 percent reported that they will add mandatory GDPR policy adherences to employment agreements, while 25 percent would consider withholding benefits—including bonuses—from non-compliant employees. Furthermore, 34 percent reported that they will reward employees for complying with GDPR policies.

“Data is one of the most critical assets within an organization, yet many businesses are struggling to implement good data hygiene practices—and that often starts with employees,” Mike Palmer, executive vice president and chief product officer at Veritas, said in a statement. “However, our research shows that businesses are getting serious about driving cultural change within their organizations.”
