TrustArc webinar: consent & legitimate interest – the continuing debate

Data Protection World Forum in partnership with privacy compliance leaders, TrustArc, present “Consent and legitimate interest – the continuing debate” webinar.

Designed for business leaders seeking advice and guidance on compliance with the latest data privacy legislation, this exclusive broadcast brings Abigail Dubiniecki (GDPR and Data Privacy Specialist, My Inhouse Lawyer) into debate with Xavier Alabart (Senior Privacy Consultant, TrustArc)

A pivotal time in consensual marketing

Our guest speakers will explore the intricacies of obtaining the proper consents for data use in an era of heightened data privacy legislation.

On May 25th 2018, the introduction of the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation changed the face of modern marketing by forcing executives to prioritise the safety of personal data at every stage of campaign processes.

Users must now give their explicit consent before companies can use, store and share personal data, but explicit consent is just one of five bases for compliant data processing under the GDPR.

As opinions evolve on how to quantify “legitimate interests” as a means to process information, consent management has become a critical issue of debate for executives on the journey to build ethical data handling practices.

This webinar will cast light on the key issues affecting consent and legitimate interests in marketing today, studying topics such as:

  • The most recent guidance from regulators on seeking consent
  • The fundamentals of Consent Management
  • Sample consent forms, legitimate interests assessments and other best practice examples
  • Use cases of Legitimate Interest & limitations
  • Industry response to new regulations – how has marketing changed?

“Consent and legitimate interest – the continuing debate” is designed for executives and marketers seeking to understand the application of legitimate interest as per regulator guidelines, within the broader landscape of compliant marketing.
