My Top GDPR Resources
Are you concerned about the approach of GDPR? Do you feel unprepared? Well, guess what you’re not alone.
Let me start with a quick Wikipedia guide to What is GDPR?
At the moment I am in the middle of a course by FutureLearn called Understanding GDPR. I have been very busy, therefore I now only have a few days within which to complete the course. If I am honest there are so many factors involved in what I have been learning that I still need to rely on other sources of information.
The intention of this blog is not to go into the intricacies of all the legislation surrounding GDPR, as each organisation/business is different and will need to establish what is applicable to them. What I can do is signpost you to websites/organisations that are better equipped with knowledge and expertise surrounding this.
At the top of my list for ‘must-reads’ is:
ICO and Getting ready for GDPR resources which includes a great deal of online information and an extremely useful 12- step guide. There is a dedicated telephone line for SMEs, which is probably very busy at the moment.
Next on my list is:
The Guardian and What are all these GDPR emails filling up your inbox? which is a straightforward spin on the implications of GDPR.
Third on my list is:
A source from one of the most popular marketers’ websites – An article and countdown from Hubspot.
Last but by no means least is:
A clear and concise video by Sarah Dixon of Spider Creative which I came across on Linkedin. Not only is the video helpful, but Sarah has also been extremely accommodating in the comments section too.
I am very grateful for all the information that is out there as I think this is a difficult matter to get to grips with. Right now, I am going to back to my course to see what else I can glean.
I hope that this has been of some use to you and hopefully help you prepare for May 25th.
Thanks for reading.
