GDPR-Inspired Data Privacy Best Practices
To start the webinar, Andrew Hall, FormAssembly Application Security Engineer, and Ashley McAlpin, FormAssembly Director of Marketing, introduced themselves and discussed FormAssembly’s role in data privacy. They shared background information about the GDPR, some pros and cons of this legislation, and valuable best practices from the GDPR for U.S. businesses. These practices include the need to:
- Be transparent
- Ask for explicit consent
- Honor customer requests
How to Implement These GDPR Best Practices
