UK Business Data Survey 2022

13/06/2022 | UK Government

The government has published the results of its second survey into how UK businesses use digitised data. The Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport commissioned the 2022 UK Business Data Survey (UKBDS) to improve their understanding of how data is used. The survey looked at several areas, acquisition and sharing, data governance, Infrastructure and location, data protection law, and international transfers. In terms of data protection, the report identifies that 65% of businesses processing personal data confirm they have systems in place to deal with data protection complaints. The report also confirms that 61% agree the current legal regime balances responsible data use against protecting the rights of individuals. More significantly, only 12% disagree. 

Compare the 2022 report against the UK Business Data Survey 2021.
