GDPR Compliance for Marketing - Dan Stevens.

In this presentation, I will give a brief overview of GDPR, the implications for Marketing, and what Marketing can – and should do – leading up to the May 25 deadline.

How to Get the Most Out of Your Canadian Database Post-CASL - Lauren Aquilino

In July of 2014, the Canadian Anti-Spam Legislation (CASL) went into place, requiring companies to have explicit or implicit opt-in from Canadians in order to email them. In July of 2017, the time period for emailing those with implicit opt-in was shortened, and a closer eye is being kept on those out of compliance. In this conversation, you'll learn the answers to:

    • What is CASL?
    • What are the guidelines I should be following?
    • How the heck do I set this up in Marketo?
