To set the scene, the GDPR not only applies to organizations located within the EU but it will also apply to organizations located outside of the EU if they are processing personal data in connection with goods or services offered to EU data subjects or are processing personal data in connection with monitoring the behavior of EU data subjects. It applies to companies processing and holding the personal data of data subjects in the European Union, regardless of their location.As you can see, this has far reaching implications, and as such for organizations who are subject to such laws, this is a topic of intense discussion and debate. The breadth of the regulations and the implications of non-compliance have led to customers (in particular CIO/CISO/DPO leaders) having to re-evaluate data protection and handling.
