    For those of you that are subject to the GDPR (we have customers in EU countries) what resources are you using to verify that you are compliant or to find out what you need to get that way? Is there a comprehensive checklist? Do you acquire the services of a consultant or attorney that specializes in it? The company I work for still has more questions than answers as far as what it needed to comply.

    Well, good! I hope in these companies profound sense of head swaggering arrogance that the EU fines them $20,000,000 or 4 percent of their budget for each offense when they continue business as usual. I will for one laugh my *** off when it happens. I am only hoping the first violator is Facebook.
