Speaker: Howard J. Sewell, President, Spear Marketing Group, and Anne Angele, Senior Marketing Automation Specialist, Spear Marketing Group

As you likely know, the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) takes effect May 25. Surveys show that most US-based B2B marketers are still woefully unprepared, even though the regulation affects not only any company actively doing business in Europe, but anyone even communicating with European contacts in his/her marketing database. The penalties for non-compliance with GDPR can be severe – in the millions of dollars.

The coming month will test the boundaries of change management for marketing organizations (and their colleagues in sales, finance, IT and legal) as they ready their teams for the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which will go into effect May 2018. Much of what we’ve seen in B2B marketing publications, martech vendor blogs and from word-of-mouth borders on fear-mongering. Not to say this isn’t understandable – a lot of rather quick changes must be made to ensure GDPR compliance, and they can feel overwhelming.
