The changes introduced by the GDPR on 25th May 2018 affect all organisations that use information about individuals and marketing is one of the areas that has been impacted in a major way.

The rights of individuals have been improved, the obligations of organisations made more onerous and fining powers have been significantly increased to a maximum of €20 million or 4% of worldwide turnover, whichever is the higher.

If this wasn’t enough then further changes are likely when the ePrivacy Regulation is finalised albeit there remains a great deal of uncertainty about when this will happen.

The course is delivered by a former in-house lawyer with many years' experience of working and lecturing in this field. There will be a number of exercises with an emphasis on practical application, common sense and risk assessment.

Given all that has changed and all that may change, can you afford to miss it?
