Privacy Culture Panel: Embedding a Culture of Privacy (Sponsored by Privacy Culture)

The world’s first academia and industry-led research that has been conducted to map employee privacy culture attitudes and behaviours across the spectrum of privacy domains and controls. An authoritative 24-page, 2021 Report highlights some of the key challenges facing DPOs/CPOs when it comes to embedding a culture of privacy across their organisation, some of these unique insights include:
- Nearly a third of employees are not confident that Data is deleted or anonymised once it has been used for its original purpose.
- One fifth of employees do not believe their organisation is open and transparent about how it uses the personal data of its stakeholders.
- 1 in 4 employees do not know the difference between Personal Data and Sensitive Personal Data.


For those of you familiar with our Global Privacy Maturity Framework, our survey tool, Culture Horizon, utilises the same 12 domains–or global privacy principles (i.e. NIST, CCPA, GDPR, OECD) – to measure the cultures of privacy. With over 3,000 anonymous participants from over 52 countries and across the whole gamut of sectors, roles, and functions, this truly is the first and the most thorough snapshot of privacy culture to date.


Today, we have invited the survey respondents to answer some questions about the survey results and obtain their unique and unparalleled experience on the topic of embedding a culture of privacy.
