In this episode of the Rethink Podcast, Act-On’s David Fowler tells us about the upcoming new rule to protect the personal data of EU citizens, and the GDPR implications for your business.

The General Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR, becomes effective on May 25, 2018. And while that is a year away,operationally there are a lot of things you need to think about in terms of getting your companies prepared.

As an example, GDPR compliance may come up as your are renewing vendor contracts now that will be in effect a year from now. This episode has some great info, but we’re not offering any legal advice or guidance. You should consult with your own legal, your compliance officers, as well as your tech and engineering teams.

As David says, it will likely take a village to be compliant.    

Enjoy the conversation, and we hope you can get one or two takeaways that you can bring to your business.
