The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is an important topic of conversation for U.S. companies. Since its inception, the GDPR has raised a number of questions about whether businesses are prepared to comply. It was adopted on April 27, 2016, and allotted a two-year postadoption grace period for businesses to strategize and implement their own compliance.
