Despite 71% believing UK data protection laws should be stronger, 53% still admit to sending sensitive documents by email and 19% have lost critical documents in transit
London, UK – 3 June 2014 – A survey by Ipswitch, the trusted choice for managed file transfer (MFT) solutions, reveals that fear of reputational damage is the biggest driver for business professionals to comply with data security laws. Yet the majority are still failing to secure the transfer of critical files.
The survey, conducted at the end of April 2014, asked 415 business professionals working across the EU about attitudes, practices and technologies relating to data security and protection. The results also show that the UK is seen as having tighter data protection laws than Germany or France. However, the vast majority think the UK’s data protection laws need to be even stricter.
