5 essential GDPR resources for marketers

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 in marketing from across the industry:

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. 

Grab the guide here: https://ico.org.uk/for-organisations/guide-to-the-general-data-protection-regulation-gdpr/

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 with all kinds of research, blogs, guides and webinar play-backs included. It's worth keeping abreast of this resource, for updates as well as a deeper-dive into anything very specific relating to The GDPR in marketing.

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.
