Why middle management and the board disagree on GDPR

A new global research study – conducted by Clearswift  – across the UK, US, Germany and Australia reveals that just 21% of middle management believe they are ready for GDPR. This compares to 41% of board members. We speak to Guy Bunker, SVP of products to get his take on the findings.
