IAPP together with EY has published their second annual Privacy Governance Report. 120-pages report is result of data provided by 600 privacy professionals across the globe. It focuses on GDPR and move of other countries towards more robust privacy regulation.
UK’s National Audit Office (NAO) has found that government has breached personal data security nearly 9,000 times in a year. Most of breaches – about 6,000 – are on HMRC.
NAO found that 17 largest departments recorded 8,995 data breaches in years 2014-2015, but reported to the Information Commissioner (ICO) only 14 incidents. Although not all incidents shall be reported to ICO, NAO observed that lack of detail in the self-reporting data means it is not possible to determine how significant any of unreported breaches was.

IAPP-EY Privacy Governance Report 2016 contains 126 pages of detailed information from 600 companies around the world that have provided answers to budget, staffing, organizational, and prioritization questions.
