Submission + - GDPR Will Change Security and Privacy Everywhere (

storagedude writes: Companies that have separate data protection and privacy policies for non-EU customers may find that solution unworkable, writes Henry Newman on eSecurity Planet. Microsoft acknowledged the problem this week when it announced it would follow GDPR mandates globally for all customers. Expect others to follow, writes Newman.

'[G]iven the worldwide nature of business and worldwide travel of people ... it is virtually impossible to have different data policies in different locations. From a cost perspective, it makes the most sense to have a single inclusive policy for the company to follow around the world instead of lots of local polices that will be confusing to those charged with implementing them. A workforce that implements a single policy is much more cost-effective.'
