With the deadline now passed, the greatly expanded scope required and potential huge penalties for non-compliance (up to €20million or 4% of worldwide turnover), this regulation now requires immediate action if you have not acted thus far.
It applies to all companies who deal with EU nationals whether based in the EU or outside.
There is also no escape because of Brexit. Secretary of State Karen Bradley has said "We will be members of the EU in 2018 and, therefore, it would be expected and quite normal for us to opt into the GDPR and then look later at how best we might be able to help British business with data protection while maintaining high levels of protection for members of the public".
