Heading towards the perfect storm: More than half of UK businesses are still not fully GDPR compliant according to Egress survey

A survey of UK GDPR decision-makers conducted on behalf of Egress, the leading provider of people-centric data security solutions, has revealed that 52% of businesses are not fully compliant with the regulation, more than a year after its implementation. The survey also found that 37% of respondents had reported an incident to the ICO in the past 12 months, with 17% having done so more than once. Interestingly, the results showed that over half (53%) of mid-size companies had reported data breaches to the ICO in the past 12 months, compared with 36% of small companies and only 23% of enterprise organisations*. Similarly, a notably lower percentage (39.5%) of mid-sized companies reported full GDPR compliance compared with 56% of large and 51% of small companies.

ID.me Launches REAL ID Pre-Screening Service for Issuing Agencies

ID.me, the industry leader in secure online identification verification, today announced the launch of REAL ID Pre-Screening https://www.ID.me/business/realid, a service that uses ID.me technology to provide REAL ID applicants with instant, secure assurance that their documents satisfy REAL ID requirements before they enter the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). This enables DMVs to process REAL ID applicants faster and more efficiently, without increasing overhead costs. REAL ID issuing agencies have found that many applicants arrive at the DMV with documents that do not comply with REAL ID guidelines, creating a confusing and frustrating experience that significantly increases wait times. As just one example, while standard REAL ID document instructions may indicate that a utility bill provides sufficient proof of residency, some may not contain the applicant’s name or their precise street address. So, while the document type is correct, the specific document the applicant brings won’t meet REAL ID requirements.
