A Fireside Chat: Good Digital Governance in Your Company — How to Build a Framework for Success?

In this session, we’ll explore a variety of examples of building a Governance framework for digital excellence. For many companies, creating guidelines and best practices for digital channels is an often sidelined but necessary burden. We will discuss how companies are successfully implementing these frameworks and engaging the organization to drive digital forward, rather than limiting its growth due to concerns about liability and exposure. Along with making GDPR principals an integrated component of good digital governance to protect your company, we will discuss how good governance builds company stewardship, leads to efficiency and ultimately drives revenue for the brands.

GDPR IRL: A Marketer’s Playbook From Econsultancy

In this working session, marketers will get answers to the most common and pressing questions about the practical effects of GDPR.

We’ll begin with a fast-paced presentation that highlights the key requirements of GDPR in the context of real marketer questions that have surfaced in the months since GDPR went into effect.

Attendees will then split into groups to discuss their own issues and work together on exercises designed to familiarize them with GDPR’s requirements around data management and communication.

The session will conclude with a panel style Q&A, bringing together experts from the day to address questions that come out of the group work.

Attendees will receive Econsultancy’s detailed Guide to GDPR for Marketers.

A Pharmaceutical Marketer’s Guide to Consent, Cookies and Data Subject Rights

Global privacy laws like the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and impeding ePrivacy Regulation created new challenges for pharmaceutical marketers. For years marketers relied on pre-checked boxes, cookies and trackers to understand their audiences and automate marketing. While these new laws don’t prohibit the use of these strategies outright, pharma marketers will need to adjust their activities to stay compliant. In this session, we’ll dive deep into what pharma marketers need to know about consent, cookies, mobile and data subject rights so they can maintain a GDPR compliant marketing program.

Lauren Hinkley, Enterprise Account Executive, ONETRUST

12:00PM – 1:00PM

An Overview of the Current State of GDPR for Marketing and Digital Professionals

As GDPR represents the next generation of consumer data protection — and it’s here now — this session will serve as a starting point for learning about the breadth and depth of the regulations. It will also provide references and links to additional resources in order for marketers to continue their own exploration of this new and emerging required competency.

Jeff Godish, Vice President, Digital Strategy and Planning, MERKLE

2:00PM – 3:00PM

Is GDPR the Future in the U.S.?

While GDPR is clearly an EU initiative, is it predictive of what is to come in the United States? In this session we will cover:

  • The current status of data privacy regulation in the U.S.
  • The California Consumer Protection Act of 2018
  • Additional current efforts
  • The likely future of data privacy legislation

David Reim, Chief Privacy Officer, DMD
