A new press release reports, “A study from Veritas Technologies, a leader in multi-cloud data management, has found that the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has the potential to drive major cultural changes in businesses worldwide. Nearly three in four respondents plan to incentivize employees to improve data hygiene and take accountability for data compliance. According to The Veritas 2017 GDPR Report, 88 percent of organizations around the world plan to drive employee GDPR behavioral changes through training, rewards, penalties and contracts. Almost half (47 percent) of businesses will go so far as to add mandatory GDPR policy adherences into employment agreements.”

The release goes on, “Failure to adhere to contractual guidelines could have significant implications. Nearly half (41 percent) of respondents also plan to implement employee disciplinary procedures if GDPR policies are violated.  A quarter of businesses (25 percent) would consider witholding benefits—including bonuses—from employees found to be non-compliant. At the same time, 34 percent say they will reward employees for complying with GDPR policies, as those employees are helping to promote proper data governance within their organizations, which can lead to better business outcomes.”
