The UK Data Protection Index is produced by Data Protection World Forum and The DPO Centre. Each quarter the Index provides a glimpse into the changing attitudes and sentiments of Data Protection Officers across the UK. The panel of over 420 DPOs are quizzed every three months on a consistent set of questions, allowing us to closely track shifting views and opinions. New questions are also added each quarter, gathering further insight into DPOs’ views on the very latest issues being faced by UK Data Protection Officers.
