GDPR Regulations Changing End of May 2018
Posted on 5/9/2018 8:22:12 AM by Judi Grassi

As of May 25, 2018, organizations working with data of individuals residing in the European Union (EU) will need to be GDPR compliant. The GDPR, or the General Data Protection Regulation, is a set of rules designed to protect the privacy and personal data of EU residents.
