A third of US businesses do not feel prepared for GDPR deadline

I have today heard of a Danish company with a US vendor delivering on-line services to them. This vendor has today announced that they are not doing anything in regards to the GDPR. They seem to abandon doing business in the US, at they estimate that the costs associated with compliance will zero out their earnings doing the business. 

 

What's your experience?

Re: A third of US businesses do not feel prepared for GDPR deadline

These corporates will always link compliance to operation cost and view it negatively rather seeing the benefits of building, gaining or demonstrating trust and reputation.

 

As consumers too, we should single out these companies and shunt them prompting controllers to use more trusted service providers.

 

Today, the issue is on GDPR...tomorrow, they will find managing security is highly costly...

Re: A third of US businesses do not feel prepared for GDPR deadline

The measuring of Awareness, Training Education and Best Practice usage provide some indication of the degree of preparedness. If indeed US companies want to compete worldwide, the technology that instills Personal Data Security by design and default at the granular level of a consenting system should have been fully adopted in US Software Development and Testing - Best Practice. Who had the leading edge to retailing the GDPR technology since 2016?Amazon, ,Oracle, Microsoft, Apple? The EU-US Privacy arrangement that replaced Safe Harbour is only transitory. US Tech Giants and professionals should have been in lock step with the EU Tech Industry in adopting GDPR development very early!! They are about 2 years late, I am afraid!
