Staying ahead of compliance regulations is not a trivial task, especially since regulations are constantly changing. The compliance regulation ‘du jour’ if you will, is the European Union (EU) General Data Protection Regulation, other wise known as GDPR. GDPR is hot on everyone’s mind as it becomes enforceable on May 25th of 2018. After that day, organizations will need to adhere to the data security regulation or face a steep fine. The fine could total 4% of a company’s overall revenue or $20 million euros, whichever one is the biggest.
