Web Content & Legal Compliance Training Course
A guide to the legislation and regulations for online content
|Please note: This course is currently only available in-house|
The legislation and regulations relating to digital content are increasing. Campaigns can get pulled, organisations are increasingly named and shamed in a very public manner and there's a risk of substantial fines. Can you or your organisation afford not to know about web content and the law?
This course cuts through the red tape and confusion, offers practical solutions and approaches, with tools and processes designed for marketers, agency professionals, content managers and strategists with no legal background.
By the end of the day you’ll know what you need to know and have useful ideas that you can start implementing as soon as you get back to the office.
The day is packed with activities, case studies and opportunities to tackle your own challenges and audit your current compliance, with expert support and guidance, as well as showing where to find the resources you need to stay on top of this rapidly changing and increasingly important area.
