Report after report indicates that consumers care more about data privacy than ever before. In one survey, 84 percent of respondents indicated that they care about privacy, care for their own data, care about the data of other members of society, and they want more control over how their data is being used.
“Data privacy is less of an afterthought now,” says data privacy expert Abbie Clement. “It’s in people’s faces more. There are companies getting fined. It can also be a big hit to your reputation. It’s the talk of the town. Not only are legislatures looking out for this, but consumers are more aware of data privacy and what your rights are. People now understand that they have the right to be upset about misuse of their data.”
Clement is the head of content at iubenda, a data privacy solutions provider that helps startups and other companies make their websites and apps compliant with the data privacy laws, across multiple languages and legislations. On Jan. 25, 2022, Clement will be hosting a webinar for Founders Network members where she’ll provide an easy-to-understand overview of the most important data privacy laws – with special emphasis on the United States and Europe.
Clement will also cover:
- How to tell which laws apply to you
- How to comply and common mistakes to avoid
- Tools that protect your business and help you easily meet your legal obligations
- How to evaluate your own business for compliance
