A Marketer’s “How-to” Workshop on GDPR Compliance


This is a practical, tactical workshop on how to get your marketing department compliant with GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation). This is a new regulation taking effect in the European Union May 25, 2018. GDPR touches nearly every department within organizations that handle or transfer data containing information on EU citizens. If you deal with any data involving European citizens, you must become compliant or face a penalty of 4% of gross revenue. Incidents of questionable data usage — such as the Facebook/Cambridge Analytica “scandal” — will spur more data regulation and policing will become the norm. Start working on your data privacy compliance now.
