Towards the end of the year, we started a service to provide DPOs with regular summaries of updates to guidance from data protection authorities and changes to risks (malware, ransomware, causes of data breaches, insider threats etc.)
  • Got CIPP/E certification. the plan was to get this in 2018 for the Data protection Consultant but work commitments leading up to and following the implementation of the GDPR meant there wasn’t time to sit the exam
