The GDPR or General Data Protection Regulation is on everyone's mind right now. If you've been on the Internet lately, you've probably heard about it. The goals of this set of regulations are to give people in the European Union (EU) greater control over how their personal data is used by organizations (including businesses), and to standardize data protection rules and policies across the EU. The deadline for compliance with the GDPR is May 25th; for more information, visit GDPREU.org.
