Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock, you’ve probably heard of the Cambridge Analytica Scandal and Mark Zuckerberg’s statements about the worldwide changes Facebook is making in response to European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). If your business is not yet in Europe, you may be taken aback by the statement from U.S. Senator Brian Schatz that "all tech platforms ought to adopt the EU approach to (data protection)." This, despite the fact that 45% of U.S. citizens think that there is already "too much" government regulation of business and industry.

So yes, GDPR is a big deal indeed. When it became the law in European Union on May 25, 2018, it improved data protection for EU citizens dealing with companies not only in Europe but all around the world. In other words, whether your company is based in EU or not, as long as you have EU citizens as customers or users and you process their data, GDPR is very much relevant for your business.
