About the Data Protection Study & Report
In its 9th year, this survey identifies the insights, opinions and best practices of data protection among Small Business Owners (SBOs), C-Suite Executives (C-Suites) and members of the public at large from across the country to help Americans better navigate this changing privacy landscape. The goal is to uncover – and quantify – both the risks and opportunities American businesses and consumers face, including the upsides and downsides of mishandling data and/or being breached. While the previous reports were branded as the Shred-it State of the Industry Report, this year it has been renamed to the Shred-it Data Protection Report – a name that more closely reflects the focus of the report and the value of the intelligence it provides.
