I've worked in Data Protection for more than a decade, and it's never been a more interesting time to be a privacy geek! I'm an advocate for data protection, both as good privacy practice but also as a business enabler - companies that make good decisions on personal data are companies that consumers and partners want to do business with. I have held senior data protection roles across the charity, financial and technology sectors, and bring risk management experience to privacy advice. I have designed and delivered training for stakeholders from front-line social workers and teachers, to board members and rooms full of lawyers. At NTT Security, I enjoy my role as Global Privacy lead - I get to dig into the details of GDPR as EU DPO, while also helping the organisation on best privacy practices, and regulations across the globe. I get to see the different cultural approaches to privacy and data protection, in the context of a hugely exciting, technology-focussed company, and to be a small part of delivering an information society for the 21st century. I am also a Fellow of Information Privacy with the IAPP, CIPM and CIPP/E qualified.
