With enough initialisms to drown in, the data privacy and protection legislation that affects our apps, online services and websites can seem impenetrable. So how do we demonstrate that we understand our users' concerns, comply with regulations and strike the balance between business and user needs?

In this session, we'll provide a refresher on cookie consent and data privacy compliance on web channels. We will review the current cookie and privacy setup. We will also explore when you might need to adopt local versions.

Guest Speaker Carrie Goucher, Founder of Onefish Twofish Ltd, will show you how to have proactive meetings and be creative while doing so.
