Beginning May 25, 2018, enforcement of the General Data Protection Regulation will go into effect. Organizations across the globe conducting business in the EU will be impacted by this EU Parliament regulation, including but not limited to health care providers, media agencies, law firms and financial professionals. Businesses large and small need to prepare for changing regulations regarding the privacy of customer sensitive data, how and where it is stored, which devices it lives on and how it is accessed, lest they face significant violations leading to substantial fines.
Exciting things are in the works here at BrickFTP! We are very close to launching our new International File Storage feature, which will allow all of our customers to choose the country (or countries) in which their files are stored.
