The Information Commissioner describes the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) as “the biggest change to data protection law for a generation”.
The changes the GDPR introduces next year will impact businesses of all sizes and when it comes to doing business online, it introduces a new set of requirements about how digital marketing data is collected and used.
Join this joint Advantec and Flavourfy Digital (Mark Gracey) event to find out about the GDPR, what it could mean for your ecommerce or digital marketing strategies and what to do to prepare yourself for when the Regulation becomes law in May 2018.
Mark Gracey began working in the internet industry in the mid-90s when he joined Demon Internet to set up their commercial web sales and support team; this was the early days of the web: before WordPress, before Google, before social media.
From there Mark set up one of the UK’s first network abuse team which led to a fifteen-year career in internet regulation dealing with everything from internet content liability to data protection and police liaison.
