Europe’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is set to take effect on May 25th. Companies operating in Europe are challenged to comply with one of the most stringent data privacy regulation regimes. But there are also big opportunities for companies to get ahead of the curve in building consumer trust and to compete on “safe” digital products and services.

  • What opportunities does GDPR offer for companies to strengthen brand and reputation?
  • Is GDPR setting an example for the rest of the world?
