What do I do?

My role is to support the business and our clients with the compliance implications of their digital transformation journey, making sure we embed privacy and data protection by default and by design in what we do, and achieve your information security objectives through proportionate means.

This takes shape through policy development, training, audits and assessments, knowledge management, process improvement, and a fair amount of legal and regulatory horizon scanning to anticipate changes affecting the work and services we deliver to our clients.

My experience and expertise

Other than local and international data protection regimes, my primary area of expertise lies in international Standards ISO 20252 and ISO 27001. What I enjoy most is coming up with creative and pragmatic answers to left field compliance questions!

I am CIPP/E-certified by the IAPP and sit on the Ethics & Compliance Committee of market research trade associations, including the UK’s BHBIA, the IQCS Council, and the Market Research Quality Standards Advisory Board (MRQSAB).
