Having an effective sales and marketing process in place for your business is critical to your growth plans. Just as important is ensuring that your sales and marketing teams understand the role that they play in complying with the General Data Protection Regulation. Since the updated data protection law was introduced back in 2018 a common expression has been "GDPR says no", followed by "GDPR doesn't apply to me" yet this is far from accurate.
