It’s been 8 months since GDPR came into effect. Whether through a flood of ill-advised emails or having to click through extensive, updated privacy policies, users the world over have already felt its impact. Businesses have too – and not always in a positive way.

Many organizations still aren’t compliant, and it’s unclear if or when they will be.
