A new regulation is upon us. Set to take effect on May 25th, 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a new law implemented within the European Union (EU) to provide stronger protections for personally identifiable information collected, processed, and stored by business entities. In a globalized economy, the GDPR will have a significant impact on the technical and organizational measures of many non-European companies. Any organization that collects and processes information belonging to EU citizens will have to comply with provisions specified under the new convention. For this reason, corporations of all sizes are scrambling to meet the requirements as the final implementation date of the law quickly approaches.
