GDPR? That's a regulation for the European Union. But, if you collect data from customers or employees within the EU, then you need to know about GDPR and make sure your organization is compliant by May 2018. Check out our preparation checklist to make sure you're on track today!

I wonder how many thousands (tens or hundreds of thousands?) of times this question has been asked on this site?  Why doesn't anybody ever just search the Previously Answered Questions?   Grumble, grumble...

Stupid question (the ones I am best at...)   :^)

Arent the limited members not able to search? or was this something that has changed recently? I remember way back when searching was restricted to premium members or qualified experts....
