A new era of stricter data regulation has begun

As of May 25, 2018, a European privacy law, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), is in effect.
The Australian Mandatory Data Breach Notification became law in February 2018.
And next year the EU ePrivacy Regulation is scheduled to come into force.
Each of these regulatory changes will affect your business and how you store and treat data. To get you started, we've collected some great resources to aid you in understanding, planning for and implementing the required changes to ensure your business is compliant with the new era of stricter data regulation.
