I Do Business Overseas. How Do I Comply with International Standards?

Companies doing business overseas have to meet the cybersecurity/personal information privacy requirements of the countries in which they do business. Each industry has specific requirements. All must meet general requirements such as GDPR to do business in the EU.

How Does Going Global Help My North Carolina or South Carolina Business?

There are many benefits for going global such as the fact that 96% of the world’s business consumers live outside of the United States.

International expansion gives your company the chance to grow and expand as well as competing with the big brands like IBM and Nike, who do a great deal of business worldwide.

However, your North or South Carolina company needs to know the rules and regulations, which can be tricky for someone who is new to international expansion. When you expand overseas, you have a whole new level of security and industry-specific regulations to learn.

The Steps to Take when Going Global

The first place to start is the market. Make sure that your services or product will be well-received in the areas you plan to expand. You do not want to waste a bunch of time and money investing in an area that will not use your services.

Learning about the culture of the area is also beneficial. You have to get to know the people in the country you are considering doing business with. Do your homework, so you do not step on anyone’s toes.

Finally, you need to have a good grasp on the contract laws, IT compliance expectations, trading, currency conversion, and taxes, among other things.
