December 16 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
About this Event
Cybersecurity may be the last thing on your mind as a marketer. But if your organization has a website, sends and receives emails, uses social media, or has a database of prospect and customer information, securing all of that is something you’ll want to consider! The ability to leverage prospect and customer data is a key element of your marketing program. If you’re not complying with privacy regulations, it could cost you – GDPR violation fines can be as much as 20 million euros or 4% of the organization’s global revenue. Join this talk on cybersecurity basics that will help you identify considerations for privacy and cyber security as a marketer.
• Cybersecurity basics for everyone
• Considerations for complying with privacy requirements such as GDPR
• Tactics you can use to protect data
• Who should be on your data protection team
• Resources to help your organization improve cyber security
