Research conducted by the Federation of Small Businesses found the majority of small businesses in the U.K. is unprepared for the EU General Data Protection Regulation, the Financial Times reports. The research found more than two-thirds of Britain’s small businesses are either in the early stages of their GDPR prep or have not started at all. Of the respondents, fewer than one in 10 has claimed they are fully prepared for the new rules. The Federation of Small Businesses is calling for the U.K. Information Commissioner’s Office to introduce a “safe harbour” allowing small businesses to voluntarily report themselves to the agency if they know they have violated the GDPR.
