The 2018 Eye on Privacy Report is the first of its kind.

Focused solely on privacy awareness and how employees handle sensitive data, the Eye on Privacy Report analyzes how more than 1000 U.S. employees told us they would respond to sensitive data in real world scenarios. Some results include: 

  • 8% said they weren't sure about reporting a cybercriminal stealing the sensitive information of clients
  • Employees in the finance industry were nearly 20% less likely to label tax documents as the most sensitive type of information
  • Millennials were just as hesitant to share sensitive information online as older peers
  • Technology sector employees were the most familiar with the GDPR, which went into effect in May 2018
