There was a major fuss surrounding the deadline for GDPR, the new EU data protection law. It was almost humorous watching people do what they thought they needed to do to comply, and in many cases, screwing it up.
Beyond that, what are the broader implications of the European privacy law? Is it just a pain, or could it actually be a good thing for small businesses?
