May 25, 2018. The deadline for compliance with the EU GDPR regulations. You probably received a flood of emails leading up to that date, and noticed numerous sites now have popups asking users to accept website cookies when browsing a website.
It turns out though that few companies have been able to meet the strict requirements of GDPR. A recent survey by Talend also surprisingly found that compliance with GDPR was actually higher by companies located outside of Europe than those inside. A survey by Yahoo found that more than 60 percent of US companies were in compliance yet 50 percent or less of European companies complied.

As a result, many businesses are falling short of their GDPR obligations. They can lack the proper methods for storing, organizing or retrieving data in line with the regulation’s requirements.”
