A day in the life of... a head of digital compliance

Compliance will be one of the more unlikely buzzwords of marketing in 2018.

Yes, data protection has always been extremely important, but the GDPR in Europe affords individuals more rights and demands customer-centric companies put their money where their mouths are.

The role of copywriters in a GDPR-ready world

The GDPR will apply to any company that holds data on EU citizens, so affects global as well as European-based companies. 

Those companies that don’t comply with the regulation could face massive fines. And it’s likely that could be more than a few – some estimate that 75% of current marketing data won’t comply with GDPR.

Why GDPR is great news for marketers and will create a more efficient data economy

As things stand, we are in a situation where the immensely valuable commodity of personal data is being collected by businesses either for free, or for a fraction of its true worth.

What’s more, data is being acquired via non-transparent means, used for undisclosed purposes, and sold without legal obligation to reveal its provenance.

GDPR requires privacy by design, but what is it and how can marketers comply?

Privacy by design is a fairly old concept in systems engineering and its general meaning is pretty obvious.

Wikipedia describes it as "not about data protection" but rather "designing so data doesn't need protection," with the "root principle based on enabling service without data control transfer from the citizen to the system" (i.e. the citizen is not identifiable or recognizable).

GDPR for marketers: Five examples of 'Legitimate Interests'

You probably found this blog post because you know what the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is, and are concerned about its impact on your day-to-day work as a marketer.

When the GDPR comes into effect on 25 May 2018, marketers in the EU (or serving people in the EU) will need to be better aware of the privacy rights for individuals and the lawful grounds for processing their personal data.

How should non-EU businesses prepare for the GDPR?

On 14 April 2016 something big happened in the European Parliament that will have wide-reaching implications for marketers and businesses across the world. For those in the know here in APAC,  this ‘thing’ is a source of deep concern.

A recent survey by Veritas indicates 90% of businesses in Singapore are concerned and of those businesses 20% believe it may result in business failure.

GDPR: Six examples of privacy notice UX that may need improvement

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is set to change the rights of data subjects (i.e. people), and ergo how companies process and store data, and how they communicate with data subjects at the point of consent and beyond.

So far on the Econsultancy blog, we've concentrated on picking out examples of best practice UX for 'opt-ins' and privacy notices. But as much as we can point out good practice, it's often easier to spot those that look like they may be on shaky ground. I thought it would be useful to round up some examples to see what our readers think.

GDPR: How to create best practice privacy notices (with examples)

There are a number of factors to the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) that from May 2018 will change how companies communicate with users and process their personal information.

One fundamental factor is privacy notices – how organisations explain at the point of data collection what users can expect will happen to their data. In this article, we'll dig into the topic of privacy notices more deeply, and present some best practice examples that appear to comply with the GDPR.
