New Study Reviews Corporate Cost of Privacy Compliance

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on March 15, 2004

IBM commissioned a privacy study by the Ponemon Institute, the results of which are detailed in this press release.

  • The “survey of 44 U.S.-based multinational organizations and revealed that while privacy protection is growing in importance for businesses, investments in privacy initiatives are significantly lower when compared to other corporate compliance initiatives, such as environmental or ethics programs. For example, when compared to spending on environmental programs, the study shows that 95 percent of respondents feel that their organizations spend less on privacy than on environmental initiatives.”
