Data privacy is a term marketers are hearing more and more due to new worldwide regulations. But data privacy isn't just a regulation or a set of requirements your organization needs to adhere to, and it certainly is not something that only marketers need to worry about. It's a set of standards that, if embraced and prepared for properly, can actually bring your organization better functional alignment between product, marketing, sales, operations and IT. Moreover, it helps you set standards for your client's privacy that are just good business, resulting in more engaged prospects that will improve the buyer's journey. 

In this SiriusPathway®, we explain the main tenets of the General Data Privacy Regulation (GDPR) that organizations must be in compliance with by May 25, 2018; we illuminate the SiriusDecisions Data Privacy Compliance Model to help your organization develop a clear, actionable strategy for data compliance; we show the foundational elements of data management to ensure that marketing teams understand how data is being brought into, stored and used in marketing systems; and we advise your organization on best practices for building a preference management strategy that will enable you to stay ahead of any current and future data privacy regulations.

This is a 100 level SiriusDecisions Learning course. Courses at this level are appropriate for individuals or teams who need to level-set or become acquainted with fundamental definitions and concepts using high-level overviews of key topic areas.
