As the date for GDPR compliance looms and it's now (at the time of writing) just a couple of months away before the new data regulations become law, we thought we'd pull together our favourite resources on this important topic.
Here are Enchant's five most recommended resources on The GDPR from across the marketing world:
The ICO's guide to The GDPR
The ICO (The Information Commissioner's Office) has put together a guide to The GDPR, specifically to help marketers. It has outlined 12 essential steps to take now, as well as a comprehensive checklist to help you prepare for GDPR compliance.
Here's the 12 steps to preparing for GDPR: https://ico.org.uk/media/1624219/preparing-for-the-gdpr-12-steps.pdf
The Direct Marketing Association's guide to GDPR
This is a monstrous resource

Support for data controllers
Another resource from the ICO, this time for data controllers. If you're responsible for how data is captured, managed, processed and stored, this is essential reading with the GDPR deadline just around the corner.
