About the Critical Data Protection Benchmark Survey

The Critical Data Protection (CDP) Benchmark Survey presented by InteliSecure compares your data protection processes, policies and practices to those recognized by industry experts as best practices and that can meet internal needs as well as those of various national data protection laws such as the European Union’s Global Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).  The survey is presented in 3 sections:

  1. Critical Data Asset Identification and Associated Risks
  2. Policy Controls
  3. Technical Controls

You will receive a score along with brief commentary after completing each section of the survey, and then a Final Score at the end. The survey takes about 10 to 15 minutes to complete all sections. 

Who Should Take the Survey: The Survey should be completed by the Governance, Risk, Compliance or Cybersecurity professional in your organization who best understands your current practices for protecting critical data assets. Questions focus on your understanding of and ability to identify critical data assets (those that should not be shared or should be highly restricted in access) and how those assets are protected with your cybersecurity technologies and services.

What You Get:

At the end of the survey, you receive an immediate “score,” rating your efforts to identify, manage, and secure critical data assets against best practices.

You get the option to receive a follow up email that provides you with a PDF document showing how your individual answers compared with those of your colleagues who also participated in the survey.

Every participant who provides an email address will recieve a copy of the “2018 State of Critical Data Protection Report,” in the Fall of 2018, summarizing aggregate results from the survey.
