The sirens have been ringing loud and clear about the looming May 2018 GDPR deadline. And while companies have a broad understanding of what the regulation entails — including fines of up to 4 percent of worldwide turnover — it’s still unclear how, where and to what extent the new regulation will impact businesses.
“In May 2018, companies doing business in the EU will need to meet strict General Data Protection Requirements (GDPR) for data storage. Every EU company, or a company that sells goods in EU, will need to transparently map the types of personally identifiable information stored and where it is located.”
