PeopleKeys, the leader in behavioral instruments and understanding, is proud to announce its preparation for the new landmark data privacy act, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), to be in force on May 25, 2018, for all companies processing data for EU citizens and residents. In understanding the challenges of doing business internationally, the global publisher of customized behavioral analysis solutions wants to ensure its clients and partners that the company has taken necessary measures to adjust their personal data processing procedures to the requirements of the new GDPR standards.
