You probably don’t have to be reminded that the effective date for the European Union (EU) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is just days away on May 25, 2018. Although you may think it doesn’t apply to your business, U.S. companies that collect personal data of EU citizens are required to comply with GDPR.
If you are like many organizations affected by GDPR, you may have been preparing for months and invested significant time assessing your operations to ensure your compliance. On the other hand, you may be like the majority of U.S. organizations that are required to comply with GDPR who have not spent quite as many hours preparing for the compliance deadline.
If you are trying to understand the GDPR, whether your company is affected by the GDPR, or whether your company is GDPR compliant, you are not alone.
