Data Privacy is changing the very foundation of Digital Marketing today.

What we have thus far taken for granted – availability of detailed tracking & behavioural profiling of Target Audiences leading to personalisation of content or advertising messages – is rapidly eroding.

Consumers are becoming aware and, therefore, demanding. Privacy & Data Protection Laws are getting stringent. India is close to passing its own law. The cacophony around protection of Privacy as a human right amidst the data explosion has escalated. So Adtech & Martech, as we know it today, is set to change with fundamental models being questioned and disrupted.

So what does the hapless marketer do in this scenario? How does she make sense of what is really going on and what she needs to do as a result?

To help address this and equip marketers to deal with this strategically, two senior industry experts – Shivangi Nadkarni, Co-Founder & CEO, Arrka, and Ajay Kelkar, Co-Founder, Hansa Cequity & ex CMO, HDFC bank, have partnered to bring you a specially designed course.
