Readers Speak: How will the GDPR affect my business?

I've heard the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation is going into effect soon, and I'm wondering how it's going to impact the payments industry here in the United States in general, and my business in particular. I know the big players have had to prepare for this. I expect the major acquirers and the ones who specialize in cross-border payments and such are on top of this. But I don't do any international business right now – although I might at some point. What do I need to know? Do you have any information or articles on this?
