Chasm exists between brands and consumers on data privacy

Dismissed by many digerati several years ago, privacy has come roaring back as an existential challenge for online publishers and digital marketers. Recent privacy-related surveys from Forrester research capture an alarming chasm between enterprise marketers and consumers on the subject.

In a European context, this is playing with fire given the forthcoming General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) privacy regulations and associated penalties.
