ICO UK releases its 2020 Annual Track survey results


On 27 August 2020, the UK’s DPA (ICO UK) published its 2020 Annual Track Report, based on 2150 online interviews achieved between 25 June and 6 July 2020.

The key findings of the survey include the following:

  • only 27% of people have high trust and confidence in companies storing and using their personal data, a lower threshold compared to 2019;
  • the proportion of people with low trust and confidence has also decreased to 28%;
  • around one in eight people feel they know sufficiently enough on how their personal data is made available to third parties by the companies.

The full report is available here, and the press release is available here.
