The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a EU legislation that affects all organizations handling the personal data of EU citizens, whether inside or outside of the EU. Businesses spent a lot of time to meet the May 25, 2018 deadline. While many are still implementing, those who were ready by May 25 are now concerned with facing the challenges of processing their GDPR programs.
