GDPR comes into effect 25 May 2018 and will change the way organizations of all sizes deal with the challenge of data protection. If you think the Regulation will not affect you as your organisation is outside the European Union then you could be in for a surprise. If you think you will not be affected as your company is small then you will be in for a surprise. If you think there is a opportunity to benefit from the Regulation then you would be correct.
