GDPR Workshop - Marketing, Consent & Use of Data


TBC in February 2019

Are you in charge of marketing and worried about what the new rules on marketing and consent means for your marketing programmes? In this session we will look at what is changing in the world of marketing regulations. We’ll look at what you need to know about the Data Protection Act and the new ePrivacy Regulation, as well as how to effectively gain a consent should you need one.

The world of information law compliance can be complex and demanding, with simple advice and quality support hard to come by. Essex Chambers of Commerce have therefore joined forces with Scott Sammons FIIM, AMIRMS, Cert.NLP, who has a great deal of experience and expertise in this area, to bring businesses up to date with current legislation.  This workshop will cover:

  • A Summary of the GDPR and Data Protection Act
  • How you can protect personal data
  • What to do when something goes wrong
  • Working with the Regulator and Data Subjects

Scott is an experienced Information Governance Practitioner and trainer having worked in Data Protection and Information Management for the last 10 years across various sectors including public, private and voluntary sectors. Under the banner of Lighthouse IG Scott now supports various organisations with their information handling needs and legal requirements, including implementation of the GDPR.
