Prepare for the Impending General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and EU-U.S. Privacy Shield

Beginning in May 2018, virtually all U.S. exporters to Europe will need to be compliant with new EU data privacy legislation. Regardless of the company, the sector it operates in, or whether it actually sells anything in Europe, there will be new requirements and stiff fines in case of non-compliance.
