Well-managed organisations recognise that treating privacy as a brand asset, acting responsibility and adopting strong corporate governance are really important drivers of success. Customers prefer to spend their money with organisations & brands they can trust who won't let them down or take liberties.
This course helps you understand how organisations can behave more responsibly and comply with laws affecting their marketing.
