Seminar Description:

A serious look at how regulators are limiting your use of marketing and sales data and examples of how they will enforce and fine companies not in compliance.

Things are changing. Europe’s new “GDPR” data privacy law will go into effect on May 25th 2018 for all companies doing business in Europe regardless of their HQ location. The United States has current truth in advertising and new laws on the horizon, and both the US and Canadian Can-Spam acts are in place with enforcements and fines now on the increase.

  • Find out about the new EU GDPR regulations and how to become compliant.
    • Avoid fines that start at 10 Million Pounds-Sterling in the UK or ~$14,000,000 USD!
  • Hear actual cases where US FTC enforcements have quietly been fining companies’ marketing departments millions of dollars for data privacy non-compliance.
  • Get an update on the upcoming California state bill (AB 375) about obtaining customer-prospect consent to collect and use data including email
  • Get an update on the Canadian Anti-Spam Law (CASL)

Attend this session to keep you and your company out of trouble. Learn more about these data compliance laws and how to create a specific action plan on amending your data compliance and privacy practices before it’s too late.

Three Key Take-Aways:

  • You’ll receive an executive overview of the European Union’s GDPR (General Data Protection Rules) rules and what they mean to you.
  • Get the step by step process to become GDPR compliant regardless of your headquarters location.
  • You’ll find out what Not-To-Do when you listen to real examples cases with US companies fined for violating current US privacy laws.
