This recent Financial Times article reveals that a number of global executives are still in the dark about the GDPR. With the May 2018 deadline fast approaching, a worrying number of organisations admit to being unsure of the new data protection legislation and how it will impact their business. This article also highlights the fact that those outside of Europe are even less aware of the GDPR with less than a third of business decision makers in the US, Australia, and Hong Kong believing that they will be subject to the GDPR, despite the fact it will apply to any business holding or collecting data on EU citizens.

In an uncertain world, there is one thing organisations can be sure of and that's the need to mark the date of 25 May 2018 in their calendars. While the GDPR is a European data protection initiative, the impact will be felt right across the world for anyone who collects or retains personally identifiable data from any individual in Europe.
