How GDPR is a Prime Opportunity for Data Professionals

In this session from the 2017 ObservePoint Analytics Summit, Adam Corey unpacks how to leverage GDPR and the work required to help establish data as a priority in your organization, improve data quality standards/ownership, and build trust with your users.

Why this subject matters:

But beyond the confusion, there’s a great opportunity with GDPR for data professionals. This session will unpack how to leverage GDPR and the prep work required to help establish data as a priority in your organization, improve data quality standards and ownership, and build greater trust with your users.
