Sample: c250 UK-based Senior Professionals, January 2020
One in three senior business professionals believe their personal data is ‘unsafe’ according to the findings from our latest TPB 250 Pulse.
As one business owner observed, “The number of data breaches that are reported in the news don't seem to be decreasing. Also, I am aware that new hacking technology has made it easier for my data to fall into unscrupulous hands”
He was joined by another Managing Director who said, “It's impossible to know where 'my data' is and what is being shared and with whom. I can put in place security measures to protect the data that I own or choose to share, but there will likely be much data of mine that I probably do not even know exists, nor where it is stored or who accesses it.”
A CEO of a membership organisation noted, “Security features and tighter regulation should have made a difference, but it depends where you are talking about” while another Communications Leader concluded, “The value of personal data to big business is huge and easily accessible via social media channels.”
