GDPR Impacts Your US Business

The European Union (EU) implemented new data protection rules known as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) on May 25, 2018. But these new laws reach beyond EU borders and impact large corporations to small and medium-sized businesses in the US.

Feeling the Effects as a US Business

Though GDPR is an EU-based legislation, the guidelines impact your organization if you are handling the personal data of EU citizens--no matter where they are located. If your business processes any EU personal data, you need to get compliant.

The Risk of Non-Compliance

A fine of $23 million or 4% of the global annual turnover of a business (whichever is the greater) can be imposed, with likely higher reputational damage resulting too.

Equip Your Business for GDPR Compliance

GDPR is already affecting US business, and it's just the beginning. As data security and protection become top priority for the US and Global marketplace, companies need to stay up to date on the best practices, new laws and superior solutions to keep information secure.
