GDPR will take effect just in several months. Be sure that you and your customers are ready for that. Please remember that penalty for GDPR incompliance is really huge and may reach an upper limit of €20 million or 4% or annual global turnover – whichever is higher. Organizations should not expect any grace period from regulators beyond May 25
